Turbulence Commission: "I'm Not Stalking You; I'm Socializing: Black  
& White" by Liz Filardi


One of the original cases of criminal stalking in America is retold  
within the framework of a social network called "Black & White",  
which consists of two mirrored profiles, those of Laura Black and  
Richard Farley. The website extrapolates on the tongue-and-cheek  
usage of the term "stalking" to describe the accepted social  
protocol, a far cry from the original behavior that, in this case,  
lead to a massacre at a booming Silicon Valley company in 1988. This  
project points to new and different levels of trust, privacy and  
social order in our networked society, tells the story behind the  
first Anti-Stalking Law passed in California in 1991 in the language  
and structure of networks, and tragically binds together two  
tormented Americans, once at opposite ends of an ineffective  
restraining order.


Liz Filardi received an MFA in Design and Technology from The New  
School, where she also worked as teaching assistant to Ken Wark and  
Orit Halpern. In 2008, she was nominated for the William Randolph  
Hearst Scholarship for "Truth Recruit", a performance in which she  
visited a Bronx high school dressed as a military recruiter. Her  
performance video, "Viral Conversations" is currently on display with  
Iraqi Memorial at Sheppard Gallery in Reno, Nevada. Based in New  
York, Liz is a production manager and web designer at Kickstand  
Animation, Research and Design and has interned at Rhizome, Eyebeam  
and Rocketboom.
