Urban Sensing Installation
2017-2020
Project Website

This installation is a continuation of the CCUS urban sensing project. With the conviction that urban data collection should generate transformative actions that truly impact the urban environment, the CCUS team starts developing an urban installation that physicalizes urban sensing processes. Data collection is often framed as an invisible process hidden from residents, extending the top-down control regime. Ostenda illuminata is a digital species that “reveals “ and “illuminates “ urban residents about urban informatics.
