Full Size Model of Hope Street

One of the new attractions of Hope Street is the installation of a full sized multidemnsional model of the street. It’s located precisely upon the street itself. Unlike conventional models this one models real time and movement, thoughts, actions, minds and souls.

It was developed by artists from Peru, Bolivia and Lichenstein working in conjunction with the Arizona Institute of Complexity and Emergence. It employs techniques developed from quantum mechanics and biosemiotic communications.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, urban myths have already begun circling about the installataon (which runs from September 7 to 3 March, 2912, admission free). One of the most popular is that some people who have gone to view the model have disappeared and never been seen again, the claim being that they confused their virtual selves as encountered in the model with their real selves.
