City | Data | Future: envisioning interactions in hybrid urban space.
  The City | Data | Future installation is a collection of “design fiction” video scenarios that speculate about the experience of urban life and how it might change in the near future. These visions were collaboratively created over the course of an interdisciplinary summer school, exploring the emergent field of urban interaction design. The focus of this field is public space and the relationships between people – with and through technology. Cities in the future will contain a tangled mesh of interlocking data streams, and this complexity is increasingly forming the backdrop to human activities. The installation presents a series of works that invite the viewer to consider how technology might shape the city of the future and subsequently, our relationship with the city, and with each other. The works have been created as part of the UrbanIxD project, which ran between 2013-14 and was funded under the EU FP7 FET Open initiative.
