Parallel Cityscapes (PC)

Multimedia installation/ 2007

Parallel Cityscapes (PC) is an interactive audiovisual environment that imagines the future of the personal computer while revealing the "hidden" spaces and relationships between memories. PC depicts the parallels between modern cities and future memory spaces, representing an archive of hundreds of user-generated photographs, video sequences, drawings and computer graphics from the Web, from mobile devices, and from public spaces. This mind-bending journey is a visual paradox between real and virtual, imagining a future in which 3D browsers and media spaces merge with real cities and encourage more advanced forms of collaboration.
