Tuur Van Balen
Our cities don't consist of just streets and buildings, they are mostly made up by our behaviour and experience, which are both heavily mediated by technology.
My City = My Body is a project which explores how future technology, both its promises and its failures, might mediate our interaction with the urban environment.
We are on the verge of a new era, an era that relies on the understanding of our body, the understanding of our DNA. What does this mean for our future cities? How will these changes shape the rituals, frustrations and anxieties of tomorrow?
