Infoscape in the City

2002 Social Intervention

“INFOSCAPE in the city” is a case study for how to create a social object to let people know circumstances of the town , by setting an installation in the Kannai station in Yokohama. In this project, we temporary renovated a subway station yard for realizing a core center installation. At the same time, we installed sensor installations to communicate with the core center in 5 difference places around the station. Breathing City is the symbolic sound installation to let people know, in the core center, realtime passing amount of pople at the 5 difference places. On the each 5 place, it produces one tune as interactive sound installation. This means that people can listen to an unexpected harmony consisted of 5 different tunes at the central installation.
