My friend Tim Maly and I wrote a book about surveillance this year! It’s just back from the printer, and boy are its arms tired??
If you don’t live here, the best place to get it online is on the publisher’s website here. It’s heading to the bookstores this afternoon, and should be stocked within the next few weeks!
“How do you represent a place where there is no edge?” asked Jeff Carney, director of L.S.U.’s Coastal Sustainability Studio. A wall of his studio on the university’s Baton Rouge campus contained various map-like representations of what he calls South Louisiana’s indeterminate landscape. As Carney put it, “We don’t have a shoreline. We’re not Florida. It’s not like you’re on solid ground and then you step into water.” That “unclear edge,” Carney said, “creates problems with land ownership, insurance, all of these things. We don’t deal with ambiguity very well.”
