IN OUT DATASCAPE
International Urban Ideas Competition Entry
IN OUT. DATASCAPE.
IN OUT focuses its attention on the possibilities of intervention in the public space and how to link them with the private space.
It is necessary to reverse the tendency of confinement, of the containers of selfish activity in the spaces of human life and deposit them in the public space.
The arrival of the Internet opened new fields in human behavior, new experiences and, above all, the possibility of going through virtual fields to be able to communicate with other people, which we may not even know, through data that travel through a virtual space.
Since the arrival of the Internet, the man was able to buy objects from his house at the touch of a button, but after all, the man never stopped going out to buy, to experiment with his city, with what surrounds him.
IN OUT, is an experiment of urban landscape in data, where the public space is turned into a great channel of information, uniting the public and the private, the IN and the OUT.
This experience is nothing more than the constant flow of data through the public space and is implemented in several ways:
The possibility that a person (A) communicates directly with another (B), where conventional connection services are used (broadband, for example), the data that A issues, will leave the building where they are to reach to its destination, in encrypted codes (icons, binary codes, GIF images, among other possibilities). These codes will pass through the public space, being visible to all and forming a new element within the landscape. Now the data will cross the sidewalks of pedestrians, squares, parks, facades, instead of going under the cables.
b. The second experience is the possibility of using the public space as well as the edited borders that accompany it, to convert these data into image projections where the theme is of public interest (a kind of advertising poster), so that man can search in such spaces what you need, even buy it. This experience allows us to speculate on the thematic lines that could be charged to the landscape of the urban space, turning areas of the city into scenarios of varied themes, such as sex, tourism, news, ecology, music and many more.
In this issue, the lines of possibilities are many and very broad, and one might think that through this proposal, an inmate could offer his services from jail when he is released, and someone will hire him. Double coding IN OUT:
c. It is necessary that each region that uses these concepts of fusion of technology and real spaces, also merges the possibility of the field with the city, giving it the possibility of promoting these areas economically, and thus achieve that farmers, for example, offer their products in the virtual field fair, projected in the station of Main Street or street of fruits and vegetables. IN OUT, large-scale datascape.
IN OUT is only possible with the understanding of the current communication and technology resources, and their implementation within the new urban scene. For this, accessories such as liquid crystal plates are proposed instead of fiber optic cables that will be used on the sidewalks, liquid crystal bands that will be embedded in the facades and urban furniture (telephone booths, connection centers, banks, etc.). .) and, finally, to fuse the cladding material of the facades of buildings with liquid crystal, so that images and texts can be projected without the need for a beam of light (projector) that fuses like large screens.
The development of each of these equipment is designed to be easily applicable in the construction of public spaces.
IN / OUT, is a proposal that fuses the real public space and the virtual one by visually linking them with a hardware that allows to see the own data flowing through both spaces, as an element of the urban landscape, and physically as a communication network.
IN OUT, focuses on the possibilities of intervention in the public space and how to link them with the private space.
It is necessary to reverse the confinement of the containers of human life and the selfish way in which those spaces function, and dump them into the public space.
The arrival of new Internet fields in human behavior, new experiences and the possibility of crossing virtual fields to be able to communicate with other people, that we may know, through that "virtual space".
Since the advent of the Internet, men could buy objects from home only at the touch of a button, but after all, man never stopped buying, to experiment with his city, with which he surrounds it.
