With:
Hugo Pilate
Role:
Freelance Design Researcher
Involved in:
Overall project
Output:
3 ‘Exquisite corpse’ scripts looking at particular issues related with sustainability in city through the perspective of non-human actors
Rethinking the Smart City through the perspective of living and non-living entities

As the City Whispers is a collaborative exercise hosted during Mozfest 2021 using Spatial Chat and Google Docs. Starting from a pre-created neighborhood map and the many living and non-living entities that inhabit it, the visitors are invited to imagine the exchanges between these different entities as they try and care for their community and their surroundings.

Take a look at the following links to follow the conversations:

Convo 1 🌀🌀🌀 | On freedom of movement
Convo 2 🌿🌿🌿 | On nutrition and autonomy
Convo 3 🗑🗑🗑 | On the city’s regurgitations
