project description:

Intelligent City is a co-authored project created by international dance and technology specialists with expertise in interactive sound, choreography, wearable computing and multimedia. Intelligent City places its viewers at the centre of the interaction.

A site-specific interactive environment for everyday spaces, such as shopping centres, hospitals or libraries, in each space, monitors, projectors and trigger sensors will automatically create visual imagery and sound as the public move through, altering the perception of the architecture of those spaces. Intelligent City transforms and accentuates our perception of familiar physical spaces and through its fusion of the physical/virtual, enhances our capacity to ‘see’ and ‘hear’ in new ways.
