Kraftwerk Hammerstein Ballroom, June 1998 In a wonderful moment of pure chance I found myself next to a hip-hop fan and before the concert we had a fascinating conversation about how Kraftwerk had influenced New York hip-hop, with me telling him of the influences on the UK techno scene and also on Detroit house. Through happenstance of seating (proximity) and a shared interest we each

  • 13. TRAVEL SoHo Grand Hotel 310 West Broadway, New York, NY 10013 Haven’t stayed here in years, but very good restaurant and excellent cocktails, rooms could be a lot bigger though (although I was in the cheapest ones). Very lovely and relaxing. As long as you’re not on the side of the hotel facing the five way junction. Most memorable moment, checking in just as Massive Attack were checking out. I felt we could have shared a moment. I was wrong. Reading the New York Times when I flopped tired onto my bed made me immediately go outside and do the most obvious thing you rarely do in New York and look up.
  • 14. Whiteread’s water tower is like a beacon in daylight sky. The first thing that strikes you about Rachel Whiteread’s monumental water tower is how it seems to pull in the sun and radiate it back over the SoHo skyline. It literally glows, A perfect cast of the iconic New York water towers in pure crystal clear resin, the tower is possibly one of Whiteread’s most simple, yet complex pieces. Not only does the object represent the negative space of the water tower, it mimics the interior contents of the vessel, encouraging you to imagine a tower, full to the brim, and then stipped of it’s outer jacket. Frozen in space and time.

  • 18. There is a reason why they do what they do.
  • 22. serendipity (sɛrənˈdɪpɪtɪ) 1754 (but rare before 20c.), coined by Horace Walpole (1717-92)in a letter to Mann (dated Jan. 28); he said he formed it from thePersian fairy tale "The Three Princes of Serendip," whose heroes"were always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things they were not in quest of." The name is from Serendip, an old name for Ceylon (modern Sri Lanka), from Arabic Sarandib, from Skt. Simhaladvipa   "Dwelling-Place-of-Lions Island." Serendipitous formed c.1950.

  • 53. THINGS YOU KNOW YOU WANT It’s all about proximity Serendipity in newspapers is so much about physical proximity on the printed page. It’s not just newspapers, radio does this too. As do music compilations. Things you already know about and are interested in, throug the sheer physicality of the objects and through curatorial design are placed next to things you either knew about, but weren’t previously interested in, or things you never knew existed. THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT Ooh, look at that, I never knew about that, tell me more. See, and now you’re reading it and you’re either not interested and have moved on, or you’re reading it intently and have either found something new to love or to learn about.

  • 55. The new serendipity •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• but is it really? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Chris Thorpe, Friday 10th September 12pm. RIBA Cafe. || 51.521321 , -0.144871 Well yes and no, these folks are filters of me, I choose them and select them for what they bring to me. Obviously they bring more than just links to cool stuff and Coatseian point at things links, they bring conversation and friendship and wonder. But they are a filter, a facet of me. And are this not truly serendipitous. What is though? Tweetie. Sometime around Friday lunchtime. Screenshot, models own.
  • 56. Clay visits The Guardian, gets asked a semi flippant question involving the phrase “Chatroulette for News”. Fortunately gives a serious answer. Photo Joi Ito The question was from your’s truly and was a serious one about where the new serendipity came from in the light of my thoughts about filtering on the previous page. His answer was that yes, we should build Chatroulette for News, but that also he thought it was friends of friends, which was my suspicion too.
  • 57. Internet caught up in strange addiction to random news stories Faster than I could get out of a meeting to do something far less elegant, Dan had made it.
