DESCRIPTION

The movie Stranger than Fiction is about an author who is literally writing a real person's life as it happens. The event Stranger than Fiction features interdisciplinary art and literary work that fictionalizes: it follows the lives of strangers, disorients while browsing the internet, uses social networks in ways not originally intended, refers to new schools of thought, and is cryptically dispensed and dispersed. The installation of Stranger than Fiction is artifacts and archives related to the event: a networked computer, video, photographs, signage, a manuscript, clothing, supplemental books, and a comfy couch.
