The Automatic Information System ‘Allofake’ is an information phone system simulation (‘800’-numbers). It offers touristic routes in Paris and reproduces in real time the interactive choices with a speaker based in the geometrical centerpoint of Paris. In the new communication technologies, the net – center opposition is very important. Allofake represents this opposition: it takes advantage of the net and at the same time, it is anchored in the center. What is done in the virtual by the person is published by the speaker. The project is about the automation of displacements in the cities. It tries to compare the experiences of functional digital memory with the functional analog memory.
