Abstract

The focus of the emergent field of Urban Interaction Design is
public space and the relationships between people – with and
through technology. The currency of these interactions is data.
Making sense of this data, and making it meaningful, transparent,
useful and enjoyable is a challenge for interaction design.
Building interdisciplinary networks of researchers, and
defining this important research agenda is the concern of the
UrbanIxD project, funded by the European Union under the
FP7 programme from 2013 - 2014.
The UrbanIxD project takes the view that cities in the
future will contain a tangled mesh of interconnected, heterogeneous technological systems. Technology will continue to
evolve, and the data reading and writing capabilities of cities
will only increase, but mess and complexity will still be the
background context.
The | City | Data | Future | exhibition speculates about the
possible futures that city inhabitants might experience. The
exhibition described here is built on work created during the
activities of UrbanIxD project, particularly the Summer School
of 2013 held in Croatia.
