Visual City – The Dreaming Wall

By March 20, 2007 No Comments

I am writing a book chapter at the moment on the ‘Visual City’ and got thinking about our previous post on Urban Twitters and how the city could be used to visualise such communication. Turns out that by using a computer controlled UV laser projector and phosphorescent panels on a building wall it can, and indeed has been, done:

The Dreaming Wall, movie pictured above, is a project running in a historical square in Milan, conceived as a info-forum it randomly displays sms messages sent by standing in the square or via the Internet – similar in many ways to Twitter.

Take a look at the Dreaming Wall project which can be seen at the Galleria Contemporaneo, Mestre, Italy until March 31st.
