10.000 moving cities – same but different

Electronic Language International Festival

In “10.000 moving cities – same but different” the user moves through visual worlds posted publicly by others on social networks such as YouTube, Flickr, Freesound or Twitter. In virtual space, this information is visualized on cubes that rise at different heights to become an abstract urban environment. This results in more and more non-places/places of lost places in the sense of Marc Augé’s book and essay “Non-Places”, which could exist all over the world without any true local identity.
