Above, Miami's multi-million dollar performing arts center was built where there used to be makeshift homeless shelters. Says Martinez's boy:“WOW! How much did this cost? Looks nice, can me and a couple hundred of my homeless friends live in it?”

“Fear Itself” is a guerrilla projection project of Miami-based activist/artist Ivan Martinez. Martinez drives through the city projecting a boy “running scared” while typing his fears—our collective fears—into a laptop. Those fears are then projected in real time onto building facades. Sometimes the boy stops to catch his breath, or speak with someone, but then he is scared again and off and running.

In a slight twist, performance artist Paul Notzold uses cell phone SMS technology to allow an audience in a designated place to interact with his art by text-messaging their thoughts from their own phones. It's all in real time, uncensored, and anonymous.
