|The name of our project is City_Interactive.
The project is based on research of a real city. We consider the city as the largest social formation, as a large mechanism, a real program that controls the streaming of information.
For people the information is mosaics that are placed in space and time,
as it is impossible to imagine and see all of the whole city. The civilization
invented different plans, schemes, diagrams, graphs and for movement and
orientation – the navigation, sign and informational graphics.
To contrast with the Internet space that has a mosaic–sign building,
when you, with the help of clicks move from one page to another, all our
links and clicks activate and develop only in one compositional stage.
The visual part of our project is on the base of an informational graphic. Our virtual city is the associative informational graphic of the real city. How it depicts the environment of the city and how it influences a real city for it’s future development and planning.
For our research of the interaction of the city we designed the main points or directions from -transportation, architecture, text, signage, sounds, facture, patterns, videos, digital photography, public web cams and humanity. From which we analyzed and stylized we created our interactive city, transforming it into media space, extended it in the Internet network and virtual space.
With our project we wanted to show how the physical space transfers or
digitalizes into virtual space and how the virtual space with the tools
of new technology begins to influence the real space of city.
We consider our project as an art program. This is the synthesis of many of art forms. I.e. video art, photography, graphics, architecture, music, programming, performance and installation. Their existence can depend on the medium - on video, on the Internet, as a CD ROM project or to be as a projection in an exhibition space.
