For six evenings, large letters will scroll down the sides of the hotel at a pace that is comfortable to read, offering a complete public reading visible for miles on Miami’s skyline. For decades, this renowned book has been a resource for economists, business strategists and politicians alike to promote environmentalism and balance between economic growth and the costs of globalism on society.

The launch event kicks off five evenings of public screenings of the over 300-page book, so that it will be “read” in its entirety, each night dedicated to a section of the book: Part 1: THE MODERN WORLD, Part II: RESOURCES, Part III: THE THIRD WORLD, Part IV: ORGANISATION AND OWNERSHIP, and Epilogue.

Also featured in the launch event on the Seafair will be the work of New York-based artist Ben Vida, with a performance entitled Tracers, an electronic music piece that uses a process of digitally tracing preexisting recordings to extract control data. For this iteration Vida has traced recordings of a Cuban drum ensemble demonstrating Santeria rhythms. The control data extracted from these rhythms were fed into a number of synthesizing systems to create disjunctive dance tracks.
