Two day conference re-thinking the challenges of engagement in the public sphere.
"In the network society everyone puts together their own city. Naturally this touches on the essence of the concept of pubic domain...Public domain experiences occur at the boundary between friction and freedom."
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.
