“Cityscape 2095″ Mixed-Media + Digital

See project on Art 2.1 | New Frontier at Sundance 2013: Augmented Space in “Cityscape 2095″     http://www.art21.org/node/8621

Jacquet/Legoman and Ferrario/Mandril use a mixture of architectural influences to co-author an urban text that feels strangely familiar but is also impossible to locate. It is a representation of the artists’ utopia—a futuristic world within the real world, or a physical space augmented by the virtual. The idea was to show the passing of a day in an imaginary city in fast-forward. In the early hours of the day, the scene is sparse and line-based; but, as time passes, the imagery grows until it becomes urban semiotic overload—a desert of the (physical and hyper) Real.

Sticky bits

Various projects like Totem, Itizen and StickyBits use objects as a starting point for sharing personal stories.

In each case, these projects are using some version of barcode technology to connect stories to objects and share them via the web.
