Urban Screens in the Electric City

A session at PICNIC '11

Wednesday 14th September, 2011

1:30pm to 3:00pm (AMT)

Outdoor and public screens are the cheap, new media being installed throughout cities by governments, businesses and advertisers. Could these change the way we live in and use the city? Can the needs and rights of citizens be incorporated into commercial media networks? Will we create new ways of interacting with infrastructure and architecture?

We'll look at current best practice, some of the problems and benefits, and design together the screens and media surfaces that we want to see in our cities.
