In a New Situation, We Need a New Situationism: Manifesto for a smart city

Research output: ResearchArticle in proceedings

Almost any mid-sized city in the Western World aspires to become ‘smart’.
Hence, the smart city is not a demo city (as for instance the much-debated
Songdo International City in South Korea), but rather a term that is
mostly used to describe interfaces to existing infrastructures. In the format
of a manifesto, the article addresses this ‘scripting of space’, and discusses
potential strategies to open up for meaning-making processes in the urban
environment of the smart city. With references to the situationist movement
as well as developments within programming and design, this discussion
leads to a reflection on interface-related artistic strategies potential role in
the smart city.
Keywords: interface criticism, software studies, interface arts, smart cities,
