The Rise of Predatory Locales in the Postwar World
On inventive and imaginative research Pandemonium -"the rise of predatory locales in the postwar world" should be mentionned. About techniques of control in a capitalist society, quite a dark book but actually achieves a somewhat productive critizism. Though from personal experience and from a talk yesterday on working in callcenters it might be that on that topic you could write an even grimmer book -my roommate worked for a year at a call center in Scotland and all their performances was messured and put to statistics above 30 min of going to the restroom a week would get you sacked and everybody knew that they were being monitored on their every moove. Access to these workplaces are quite restricted and doing reasarch on it would take a Gunter wallraff approach - which would offcourse be an interesting project in it self.

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.
