Club Silence net mockumentary

Club Silence / Throat Ocean was a fictional online identity & location based mockumentary project that lasted for the full year of 2010.

The project explored net based geofiction and centered on a fictional “Club Silence” that appeared on checkin and review services like Foursquare, Twitter, Facebook, Gowalla, Google Maps, and Yelp (where there were reviews of the non existent club). Most participants were unaware the project was fictional, hence the “mockumentary.” Behind the veil participants would send in fake photos and videos of themselves in the nonexistent location. There were also calls for micro performances which participants would perform and post with hashtags. The most popular were #wordsthathurt and #screaminginthealley. The idea for the EnemyGraph project originated here.
