Hands-on AI Meetup: Smart City

I recently revisited some of the IBI work for a short presentation at V2 Lab for the Unstable Media’s Hands-on AI Meetup: Smart City.

It was a really interesting workshop looking at critical perspectives on the smart city. More information about the event is here:

I presented IBI’s Urban Immune Systems Research, to discuss new relationships with place through devices that mediate how people interact with the ‘data layer’ of the city.

Roy Bendor ( presented How to trip over Data, his collaboration with Richard Vijgen, before leading us through an activity where we discussed how more diverse urban experiences might be captured or augmented through new forms of sensors and data, in order to give alternative perspectives on what ‘smart’ might mean, and for whom.

Food Friction: Exploring Nutritional Identities

Paris Selinas and I have been invited to give a talk and workshop at the Food Friction conference at ArtEZ Graduate school, curated by food designer Katja Gruijters.

“Food Friction is a conference about artistic research and the interaction between food and behaviour. The conference offers a carefully selected menu of lectures, interviews and debates, with creative courses and side dishes that consist of workshops, performances and edible interventions.”

Building on methods developed in our work in the Open Food project we will work with attendees to explore and document their own embodied culinary knowledge. Food Friction takes place on 30.11.2018, find out more here:
