We live in public








"We live in public cuenta la vida de un pionero de Internet totalmente desconocido para el gran público, el artista y visionario Josh Harris. Harris, llamado también el Warhol de la Web, fundó Pseudo, la primera red de televisión por Internet que surgió durante el apogeo de las punto-com, en los años 90. Y se encargó de comisariar y financiar proyectos como “Quiet, we live in public”, con más de 100 personas viviendo juntas en un búnker subterráneo de Nueva York .
Con "Quiet", Harris demostró la renuncia consciente que hacemos de nuestra privacidad, a cambio del reconocimiento social que todos deseamos. Y cómo avances tecnológicos como MySpace, Facebook y Twitter, hacen que esta renuncia a la privacidad se haga cada vez más patente.
Ondi Timoner documentó la tumultuosa vida de Harris durante más de una década.

"Ten years in the making and culled from 5000 hours of footage, WE LIVE IN PUBLIC reveals the effect the web is having on our society, as seen through the eyes of “the greatest Internet pioneer you’ve never heard of”, artist, futurist and visionary Josh Harris. Award-winning director Ondi Timoner (DIG! – which also won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 2004 – making Timoner the only director to win that prestigious award twice) documented his tumultuous life for more than a decade to create a riveting, cautionary tale of what to expectas the virtual world inevitably takes control of our lives.
Harris, oftencalled the “Warhol of the Web”, founded Pseudo.com, the first Internet television network during the infamous dot-com boom of the 1990s. He also curated and funded the ground breaking project “Quiet” in an underground bunker in NYC where over 100 people lived together on camera for 30 days at the turn of the millennium. With Quiet, Harris proved how we willingly trade our privacy for the connection and recognition we all deeply desire, but with every technological advancement such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter,becomes more elusive. Through his experiments, including a six-month stint living with his girlfriend under 24-hour electronic surveillance which led to his mental collapse, Harris demonstrated the price we pay for living in public." Weliveinpublicthemovie.com
