so i've seen a few posts about sensity. the photo is flash, and that little diagram is well cute, but as far as i can tell, none of this project is real yet. it aims to be a massive sensornet [apparently based on MICA2 motes] that gathers data about a city which is then used to display the emotional state of the city. a goal many people have in mind, including me, natch.
i enjoyed the following quotes:
"The sense city is a city of, accumulated incidents of love, abuse and death."so this unborn project is part of a larger initiative called soundtoys that UK artist stanza is overseeing:
"This includes pollution data recorded via sensors in the street, to create audio acoustic files expressing the pain and suffering of the air as it pollutes."
The site is intended to provide a meeting point for this growing community of artists and users, and in addition to the exhibition of audio visual projects, the site contains areas for artists interviews, links to resources, and texts by contributing writers where serious issues around interactive arts, audio visual syhthesis, generative art, and a history of interactivity are discussed.anyway, cute photos :]
[thanks we make money not art]
