Filed under: itinaries of desire, my dear city, resources, review

On Nerdcore i got this add-on Tilt which sent me back to an old desire of an immersive Web,

and applied it to my homepage. Look how the page appears as an object: – oooh i love this so much:

Who remembers Johnny Mnemonic surfing on the net? A quick search got me those 2 images, the second image bringing me back to the urban:

www.digitalurban.org/ the blog of Dr. Andrew Hudson-Smith is Director and Deputy Chair of the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA). Another site to explore and position on my map of city related links.

By the way, I finished my master at EHESS, under the direction of Patricia Falguières, the mémoire analyses my past interventions on places called «Europe Square» in regard to participation and the relation of cities with Europe.

The mémoire problematizes the representation of cultural heterogeneity against notions like diversity or multiculturalism, showing that the national narration is still the core around which culture is organized. It is available here, but in french of course.

The mémoire also collected and analyzed the exhaustive list of «place de l’Europe» in France, creating a visual material or vocabulary of space arrangement yet to be activated in upcoming interventions working on situated cultural heterogeneity.

 

A propos objects: Johnny mnemonic has become a pinball game, while I thought the comics The Invisibles would be a great story for a videogame.
