“You Are Not Here (.org) is an urban tourism mash-up. This persistent game takes place in the streets of New York City and invites participants to become meta-tourists on an excursion through the city of Baghdad. Passers-by stumble across the curious You Are Not Here signs in the street. The YANH street-signs provide the telephone number for the Tourist Hotline, a portal for audio-guided tours of present day Baghdad destinations in NYC. Through investigation of these points and with or without the aid of a downloadable map, New Yorkers are transformed into tourists of contemporary Baghdad.”
