That was fast.

Hi.

Oh, so lovely to meet you.

Good to meet you, too.

Hi!

Hi, Honey! This is my dog. I'll

put her in the-- in the bedroom.

Come on in.

You know we're neighbors?

I live just down the road.

Whoa.

[MARTINELLI] Hey...

...I'm going to start with the

cabinets.

That sounds great.

It's chaos we're remodeling.

Make yourself at home.

( SPEAKING RUSSIAN )

Come on... come on, Jax!

( ELECTRICITY BUZZING )

( SPEAKING RUSSIAN )

Those are the... the notebooks?

Yes.

May I?

Yeah... here.

Each exhibit gets its own--

Yes.

So tell me about tonight's

opening? Congratulations.

Thank you.

You found a cell phone

on the street.

You did not know

who it belonged to.

I started interviewing people

from the phone's address book...

about the man to whom it

belonged, Arthur Anderton.

I looked at his GPS history...

the places he had been,

visited those places...

photographed them... listened

to his music.

I began to see the phone

as a prism...

through which I might see

the man.

Was there anything that you

didn't look at?

I didn't look at his web history

or read his emails.

I wanted the device to...

offer up information...

that he might share with me

himself...

under different circumstances,

of course.

How does Arthur Anderton feel

about this?

While developing the exhibit,

his friends and family...

seemed to think that he

would love it.

But he didn't?

No.

Um... you also do performance

work?

What would you say is the

unifying theme...

The unifying theme?

...behind your, um...

everything you do?

Chance.

I like to allow circumstances to

present themself...

and then I rise up to meet them.

Circumstances are the...

dictator's of my work.

Like a piece of string, I pick

it up and follow it along...

and see where it takes me.

( SOFT MUSIC PLAYING )

( MUSIC CONTINUES )

Thank you, thank you again...

and, um, I hope our paths

cross again.

Me, too.

Thanks. Bye.

Has he been walked?

Not since like 11:00.

Okay, maybe I'll walk him.

Come.

[KARIN] I won't be here

when you get back...

I'm gonna go get ready.

Okay, see you tonight.

Yeah.

How long have you been

representing her?

Uh... how long have I been

representing you?

Oh... a long time, we're old

friends.

He is my mentor at art school.

Oh.

[PAUL] Scary.

Thank you so much.

Thank you for coming.

I thought you named her.

So original.

No, we're just meeting.

This is Paul.

He's my uh... dealer, Paul.

Hi.

Arthur Anderton.

[MIRANDA]

And now with this technology...

we all walk around with these

phones...

kind of attached to ourselves.

[MIRANDA] We don't memorize

anybody's phone numbers anymore.

[MAN] Not at all.

Right?

[WOMAN] It's true!

Everything is just built...

in these little boxes.

Arthur?

I'm very glad you could

make it tonight.

Did my mother give you

this photo?

Yes.

I'm glad that you're here.

You don't find it awkward

to meet me?

A real human being.

It's very nice to meet you.

( CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKING )

This little domain, it's...

mine.

This body, these arms,

these legs, mine.

You've done a bad thing.

Well, I thought it went

good tonight...

very, very good.

They're gonna put your interview

on the cover, you know?

( SOFT MOANING )

Yeah, well I thought the show

was very good tonight.

How do you feel about the shoot

tomorrow?

Huh?

Can you just give me a minute?

Yeah.

Um, you know, Arthur is gonna

sue?

[MIRANDA] What?

Yeah, I had a little talk
