Chinese Authorities close down Weiwei’s Studio - 10/08/12
During the next 6 months I have the honour to be hosted as a visiting researcher at the Parsons Institute for information Mapping in New York. Among the case studies I’m collecting (here) on spatial visualizations of geo-referenced data, in this post I selected the ones that analyse and depict several dynamics of New York cities.
The following projects are either interactive interfaces or static images, visualizing User Generated Data as well as other data sources able to enlighten some hidden dynamics of the city. A pdf of the projects above is downloadable from here, any suggestions on how to integrate this list with other relevant case studies is more than welcome!
Michel de Broin - Superficial
(MIrror, glue, cement / Vosges, Alsace, France)
Upon invitation to reflect on the notion of transparency, that led me into the forest to envelop the contour of a large stone with fragments of mirror. The large stone, tucked away deep in the woods, became a reflective surface for its surroundings. In this play of splintered radiance, the rock disappears in its reflections. Because it reflects one cannot be mislead by its presence, yet we cannot seize it, rather it is the rock that reflects us - Michel de Broin
