Session Title:

  • Creativity and Participatory Urbanism in China

Presentation Title:

  • mediated_moments and plasma_flow



  • Big data, the mobile Internet, social media and the Internet of things (IOT) generate more information than ever but the aggregation of social intelligence remains far from realising it’s potential. Two exemplary works, “mediated_moments” and “plasma_flow”, exhibited at Beijing’s China Millennium Monument Museum of Digital Arts in 2012 model the scalable potential of urban media to weave itself into the city’s social fabric, mapping and visualizing individuals’ thinking/intelligence onto a mixed-reality urban canvas.
