In/Visible City 2015: Connecting Cities @ Jena

Today’s modern cities are hybrid structures in which technology is invisibly interweaved in the perception layers of our everyday lives. With the curatorial theme of INVISIBLE and VISIBLE Cities 2015 the goal is to develop an awareness of the underlying data and technologies of modern cities, which are almost invisible to the eye. IN/VISIBLE Cities will visualize the embedded, ‘smart’ urban infrastructures in three artistic scenarios for the citizens to explore in a public setting. The three topics Digital Citizens, Hybrid City and Translocality will be the curatorial topics for creating creative use of urban data and sensor technologies.
