This podcast focuses on two examples of citizen participation, and interaction with, urban technologies.
Jennifer Gabrys discusses forms of collective potential that emerge through sensing practices with communities in South London. In what ways are urban publics emerging through the interaction between modes of citizenship and computational sensing technologies. We then turn to Susa Pop who discusses multiple applications of screens in urban spaces, including the ways in which these screens can be reclaimed for activism, storytelling and community building. How are these mediated art environments shaping urbans spaces as collaborative platforms for citizen engagement?
Speakers: Susa Pop (Public Art Lab), Professor Jennifer Gabrys (University of Cambridge), Adam Michael Packer (School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford)
