Art is Open Source will be featured at “Audiovisioni Digitali“, curated by Lino Strangis and Veronica D’Auria, with this video above about the realtime digital lives of cities.
The video has been selected by Giovanni Viceconte from the ArtHub archives and shows a typical day in the digital life of the city of Trieste, composed by capturing a full day of social network activity generated in the city of Trieste on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Google+. Each dot in the video represent one digital interaction on social networks: maybe a post, comment, video, image or text published by someone in the city. When dots connect, it means that a conversation/relation of some sort started between users: a comment, a sharing, a re-publishing.
What emerges is a complex, living diagram, which shows the organic digital life of the city, a map of the town which is not composed by streets and buildings, but rather from human relations and immaterial content and information. The city transforms, merging people’s physical experience of its public and private spaces with the digital ones.
Here is the info about the event:
