city | data | future – Interactions in Hybrid Urban Space: The UrbanIxD Exhibition

  The focus of the emergent field of Urban Interaction Design is public space and the relationships between people – with and through technology. The currency of these interactions is data. Making sense of this data, and making it meaningful, transparent, useful and enjoyable is a challenge for interaction design. Building interdisciplinary networks of researchers, and defining this important research agenda is the concern of the UrbanIxD project, funded by the European Union under the FP7 programme from 2013 - 2014. The UrbanIxD project takes the view that cities in the future will contain a tangled mesh of interconnected, heterogeneous technological systems. Technology will continue to evolve, and the data reading and writing capabilities of cities will only increase, but mess and complexity will still be the background context. The | City | Data | Future | exhibition speculates about the possible futures that city inhabitants might experience. The exhibition described here is built on work created during the activities of UrbanIxD project, particularly the Summer School of 2013 held in Croatia.
