Tuvidia by Edarneor Tuvidia by Edarneor
In the city of Tuvidia voyeurism is very nearly a way of life. Godiva wouldn’t have made it a few yards here.

It is now hard to say whether the numerous balconies and ledges in the overall vertical structure of the city are the cause or the effect of this. What’s obvious, is that the higher you live, the more people you can spy upon, so the top-level (literally) estates are the most valued and sought after. Also, shatters and canopies are legally prohibited, hence the abundance of vines, which offer at least some cover.

Odd as it may be, the unusual habit has given an enormous boost to the development of science, namely – optics!
Some of the advanced citizens prefer to enjoy a good voyeuristic experience while never getting off their couch, so they order a complex and lengthy periscope, equipped with all fashions of mirrors and lenses, that goes right to their neighbors’. Since these are stunningly expensive, the construction is usually paid by both parties, which results in a device working both ways. Not only this design effectively makes the owners equally exhibitionistic, but sometimes results in quite awkward long distance tęte-ŕ-tęte situations.

What a tale this illustrates. Imagine anyone trying to do anything on the sly in this city. It would be impossible! I'll bet they got a low or nonexistent crime rate. :D

Ps. It just occurred to me they wouldn't see much while watching back and forth just each watching the other. :)

Yeah, well maybe there is crime, but the whole city immediately knows who stole what from whom... Maybe it's considered a great entertainment even, to spectate and discuss. :)
And the thieves who steal in a most inventive and fascinating way are not punished. So that people have something to watch again!

Well, those two can do some work while watching each other, like knitting. Or peeling potatoes :D

This sounds like a seriously warped society but honestly no more than our own these days. We're having issues these days here in the States. People are claiming just about everything is racist all because of a kid who killed someone and had a Confederate flage in his hand when making some stupid you tube video. I think I like your voyeuristic society much better.

Yeah, there are all forms of wierd societies out there... I suppose some wild tribes in amazon do all kinds of strange stuff.
But from their point of view - we are mad people who sit all day in front of the box with images, and press buttons on keyboard. ;)

I know a few Amish people who work for my brother from time to time. They don't think much of our computers and tv sets and cell phones. Most of them don't even have electricity in their homes.

I'm happy I figured out what was up here right away, except at first I thought the large opening at the top was for sound, and the small one at the top for show. I was looking at the top one, thinking the man was supposed to yell in there, and then going through the pipe visually to see where the yell would come out. Then I figured it out exactly as I read the Artist's Comment.

Ух ты, очень красиво! Это наверное, какой-то фантазийный мир, возможно, из компьютерной игры? Хотя мне напоминает также итальянский (или арабский ;) ) дворик :)

думаю, если бы итальянцы или арабы такое построили, оно бы упало само на себя :)
