it´s really cool to see more motion graphics and knowledge mapping in architecture. great how they physically built the arc in the corner of the room and projected the animation on it. it’s not new at all but BIGiBig (Bjarke) has a sense for using and adapting methods for his projects. so once more well done!
what makes me think is the end of the video. are the swedish aware of the marriage? the fusion of the countries, physical wise. lets see how Copenhagen and Malmö fitt together.

Imagine walking down the streets of Berlin on a lovely summerday. All of a sudden a newspaper is thrown of you. No, it’s not a newspaper. It’s a roll made of exclusive and original artworks, given away accidentally by papergirls and -boys.
The papergirl-project takes place once a year in Neukölln (Berlin). The idea behind is to bring art into public in a new way.

Whether digital media like facebook or twitter will set an end to flyers is not sure. What’s sure is, that flyers are not just transmitting a message, but they are often simply worth seeing them for their design. So why not collect them?
Mike Riemel has been collecting more than 1 million flyers from 90 countries for more than 25 years. In the exhibition “Flyer Soziotope” in the be Berlin Stadtladen some of them can be seen. There is also available a book: “Flyer Soziotope. Topographie einer Mediengattung” (by Mike Riemel), which shows around 2,500 images. Further it documentes 25 years of the party- and clubbing-scene.
Sometimes in streetart it’s not enough to create just one picture, but a whole series. One above the other. This process is usually documented on video – the only possibility to see some of the works!
Manuel Castells [urban sociologist] said a couple of years ago that the knowledge society is going to shape, transform your cities as much as the industrial society did [like factories, infrastructure]
what does that mean to you? No cars- no traffic jam, no shopping- no waiting at the cashier, no …… etc…
Let´s kick of a discussion on informalspaceproduction.wordpress.com about the future of your society
Predicting how large crowds will react in certain situations has long been the holy-grail for architects and planners.
“What we do is to try to observe the individual behaviour of people who are part of the crowd.”

Is it possible, that someone is living in Istanbul and has never seen the Bosporus? It is, as the artist Esra Ersen found out. So she invited women, who had never seen the Bosporus, to a tour which she was filming. The videoinstallation “Passengers” shows on one screen their journey to the Bosporus and on a second the neighborhood they come from. Esra Ersen is analyzing the relationship between a town and its residents in lots of her art works.
This work is part of the exhibition at Tanas and can be seen till the 28 Nov. in Berlin (Tanas, Heidestraße 50. Tue – Sat 11 a.m – 6 p.m.) www.tanasberlin.de
