When the countryside becomes urban
Belgium
"Firefly was set up in 1999 with the aim of integrating art into every part of daily life. Its base is in Brussels and it moves nomadically around the city and its outskirts. Its main concern is an emphatically social rooting. Firefly is intended, in its creative work, to enter into communication and dialogue with the street.

To achieve this they work on a series of Creative Platforms in combination with selected sites that they discover, analyse and artistically assimilate. These sites are in most cases non-places, places that belong to everyone and no one, places with scars, places where the collective subconscious is very much alive.

N6: The Stone Road is build up around the dream to make an inventory of all Belgian trunk roads, to interpret Belgium through its trunk roads as a single huge city. The study of the Chaussée de Mons is a first step towards realising this dream, an almost random line, running almost north-south from the centre of the country."

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.
