Constraint City took part in the exhibition “Sensing Place. Mediatizing the Urban Landscape” which compiled the Crème de la Crème of artworks/designs dealing with the augmentation of electromagnetic signals in our urban environment. Works by Mark Shepard, SENSEable City Lab and Christina Kubisch are featured, just to name a few. In the words of curator Sabine Himmelsbach, the exhibition seeks to address this reconfiguration of the public space by means of an increasing overlap of the digital spheres of information and geographical reality.
As part of the show, the House of electronic arts Basel organized a handful of city walks with participating artists and
> citizens. Unfortunately, the Constraint City walk got overshadowed by a heavy rainstorm, but we still tried to capture some waves and light bruises augmented by the Constraint City vest.
Barbara Strebl paid us a visit during the tour and gave us an incredibly insightful city tour through the historic center of Basel! Thanks again
The group also ran several tests on comparing the Nintendo DS scanning results for WIFI with a contemporary WIFI scanning application based on Android.
