...New York City-based wizards the Builders Association (Aladeen, Super Vision), with fingers firmly pressed to the pulse of today's changing world, weave an engrossing fable about ways that constant connectivity alters our sense of distance and intimacy. A globe-hopping father and his homebound daughter, whose lives are transformed by digital speed and failing cell phones, and the other intriguing characters who populate this story are propelled by leading-edge computer animation, electronic music, and live performance. A participatory Web site (www.continuouscity.org) and local filming of key scenes further conflate the global and the local, the mediated and the real.
