The product of 4 years of work from In The Field, an artists collective that explores the complex social constellations around urban land use issues. With introductions to City Repair, Resource Center, Park Fiction and more, this is one of the best accounts of imaginative urban planning and neighborhood interventions by people who care. A range of social, legal and ecological issues are explored and dealt with as should be when dealing with the places we live.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
