|city|data|future| Interactions in Hybrid Urban Space

The exhibition presents a series of visions depicting what it might be like to live in a near future city saturated with data. Each piece will question what this might mean for our changing relationship with the city and its citizens.

What might it mean to live in a city where everything is measured, and crowdsourced opinion holds sway? How might this affect our own judgment in the face of such quantification and what does this mean for the creation and consumption of personal data? Will the city of the future protect us or will it monitor us? Will it provide shelter so that we can decide with whom we share our most intimate thoughts? As we reflect on the value we place on data, what new rituals might emerge around our need to share?

The exhibition is showing nine works. Five works were initiated at the UrbanIxD summer school, held last year in Split: Aurora, the Aura City; Aural Fixation; Future Cloud is Buried; Ministry of Misinformation (MoMi); and Coordination of Urban Busy Areas (CUBA). Two works have been curated for the City | Data | Future exhibition: Chupan Chupai, by Factory Fifteen, produced by Liam Young; and Blackspot by Tobias Revell, taken from The Monopoly of Legitimate Use trilogy. Eutropia design fiction and BetaCity have been directly commissioned for the UrbanIxD exhibition from the Arts Academy in Split and Edinburgh Napier University.
