In the context of the research project Public Space 2.0 we address the following main questions: how does the introduction of social platforms on the internet transform existing communication practices, and furthermore enrich social space of interaction? What impact may have experiences gained with social networks on our perception of the urban public?  Mission Statement

Innovative implementation of technology in public space

From the beginning of social interaction, communication networks have always played a major role. While for a long time the concurrent presence or at least proximity of people at a certain place was required, specific technologies have been pivotal in bridging space and time, such as printing press, railroad, telephone, radio and many others. The […]

From artifact to situation; the medialized decay of public space

The notion of public space or of public spaces as cultural artifact is bound to numerous problems, and evokes questions. Connotations of the cultural artifact as passed on throughout societies have lost their consensual viability. Let me list a few questions originating in that particular field of challenges: Is the artifact necessarily determined by one […]

Remembering Arendt

»For what appears to all this we call Being« Aristoteles[1] Part I There are some things on the Internet you just want to believe, for the mere reason that somebody puts them online. This credit of trust, despite all the necessary skepticism, may derive from the fact that the message would be worth sharing only […]

Public space, perception and technology

Human perception plays a crucial role in the way public space is perceived. Not only does it determine a surrounding’s influence on the observer but also the way the observer acts in and interacts with the surrounding. With the chosen interdisciplinary approach, Public Space 2.0 tries to enter the general public space discourse. The collaboration […]

Shaping wearable ecologies: a quest for public space through arts-based research

»I think artistic research exists.«[1] James McAllister In the last two decades, arts-based research – also known as artistic research or arts research – has been a project discussed at ontological, epistemological and methodological levels.[2] The basic proposition of this paper is that projects like our own Public Space 2.0 shall be valuable not only […]

New parameters have changed our contemporary perception of space

Architecture today constitutes places of multiple processes, and through the introduction of electronic networks various services are being offered. The progression of technologies that infuse public space is fast and therefore a vast variety of different approaches exist which are driven by customer-centred services. However, due to the emergent problems of interoperability and interconnectivity of […]

Soft and translational space: on collaborative relations in public space

We aimed for extensive research towards the improvement of the chosen location “Karlsplatz”, accompanied by empirical studies as well as prototypical development in the fields of interface design, network technology and outdoor display modes. Through innovative implementation and use of communication technology we envision the revitalization of the public sphere. Creative re-zoning of physical space […]
