The City Speaks is an exciting podcast tour of Liverpool’s history and its people, produced by sound artist Chas de Swiet for DaDaFest International 2014, with Julie McNamara as your guide to Liverpool's history and its people.
I was asked a couple of months ago to write a round up of the digital sector for a local free magazine that I've written for before. Admittedly not the most popular magazine in the world but I still gave it a go especially as I hope it will attract some new blood into the sector.
It has taken twelve years to get this exhibition up and running at FACT. Originally it started out as a lecture in Germany in the late 90's at Munich University and now it has evolved into an exhibition first shown, in a reduced capacity, in Germany in 2000. There is also a 460 page book, only in German currently, with 900 illustrations where 20 experts contextualise the phenomemon and a 25 hour running time DVD Box set.
If you are part of the EHealth sector here in Liverpool then you'll know what this meeting is going to be about if not then here is your chance to find out a bit more before you decide to attend.
The Promise, 19|07|14 – 9|11|14 Arnolfini, Bristol.
My second post of the day on Living cities consists of this piece from The Promise a show at the Arnolfini is Bristol. I stumbled into the show the other day and this piece from Warren and Mosley really amused me so thought I would repost here.
The work maps data collected from informal groups, old city records etc, but in a very insightful and amusing manner. High crime areas mapped against old peoples homes, or now defunct proposed transport schemes against illegal burn out areas from road racers.
The juxtaposition of one dataset with another is mapped out beautifully from map to map and forms an insightful view of us as we live in cities. Riotous areas exist within our cities, it is what we as humans do when we are deeply dissatisfied as a collective.
After all we are not automatons and cities should be playful, multifunctional places.
The show at the Arnolfini is good one for this piece alone so if you can go see.
