As part of the Anytime, Anyplace symposium at Pasadena City College (March 14, 2008), the Temporary Travel Office and Sarah Ross led a tour of Exposition Park, set in a fictional near future of 2030. The collapse of the Olympic Games occurred in Los Angeles in 2020, just as the city was set to become Olympia for a third time, but was defeated by a global athlete walkout in the face of global economic and political depression. The tour concluded with a reading of "Ode to Sport", a poem written by the "Father of the Modern Olympic Games," Pierre de Coubertin and a reenactment of the last torch lighting ceremony.

Two of us from HLP were lucky to be able to go on the tour while we were in the LA area for the aforementioned symposium. We are happy to offer this nicely produced box set from artists we think are doing good work about city spaces and their uses. We highly recommend checking out their other work.
