Abstract:

  • NETWORKED EXPERIENCE

    In City Tour the city is observed as a structure similar to human anatomy, which is a complex construction of numerous super-structures. In the case of Bandung City, Indonesia, people are confronted with layered, fragented, distorted spaces on a daily basis, the city is Like a living amoeba – almost organic. City spaces, not merely blocks of concrete but also crowded with noises and activities, have forced us to apply a strategic improvisation as a method of survival. Therefore it is important to carry out research into the effects of city spaces, particularly when we are confined in cities that grow at enormous speed while our adaptation abilities are limited. This tension creates conflicts on the personal and collective level.
