VISUALISING AMSTERDAM

 

CurrentCity Foundation is a research group started as a cooperation between University of Salzburg and Senseable City lab of the MIT Boston, exploring the future possibilities and applications of a ‘real-time’ city, leveraging aggregated data from the by-products of existing electronic and sensor networks to visualise human mobility and urban activity.

 

Currently developing applications to enable us to forecast and respond to emerging patterns of behaviour in real time. Visualising Amsterdam is a collaboration with award-winning artist Aaron Koblin, who specialises in data visualisation, to visualise mapped SMS text activity across the city of Amsterdam.

IMMACULATE TELEGRAPHY

 

Could humans at any point in history, given the right information, construct an electronic communication network? Initiated during a residency at Eyebeam(NYC), Jamie O’Shea built a working electrical telegraph switch in the wilderness, using no modern tools or materials. He learned to make stone tools, start fires, melt metals from rocks and finally construct a voltage producing object, showing that such technology doesn’t necessitate modern industry, only modern knowledge. The resulting Immaculate Telegraph is the first step towards an ahistorical internet.
