German art and technology collective The Constitute have created a project that projects big bees onto big buildings in cities including Helsinki and Berlin.

Connecting Cities @ International Forum of Media Arts City 2014, Sapporo, Japan

International Forum of Media Arts City 2014 “Aesthetics of Mediation: Creativity in an Age of Social Media”

In November 2013, Sapporo became a member of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network as a "City of Media Arts". A media arts city senses the breath of the city and arbitrates the challenges of the future. The aesthetic, sensing the city, is a vital organ in relation to our recognition and communication.
