Have you listened to your city today? Have you felt it? Smelled it? What did it say?
For three days, a team of curious artists, process consultants and researchers invite all citizens of Aarhus to explore the area Aarhus Ø. Together we explore, experience and enrich the atmosphere in the rough, open harbour area, based in the temporary urban space Dome of Visions.
We play with perspectives. We use the body as a mapping tool. We record moods, emotions between pebbles and tower blocks, and challenge each other’s usual way of being in the city. The events are gathered and interpreted through technological data and in the end we look at the result and ask: What is a liveable city?
The urban lab is facilitated as a collaboration between the sense laboratory Sensescapes, the research project Making Sense of Data and the process consultant company Urban Goods. Our vision is the to make a bridge between artistic practice and academic research – between embodied experience and data based analytics. And to give citizens a possibility to explore an urban area that is going through major transformation these years, through experience, reflection and dialogue.
