Smart Citizen Sentiment Dashboard (SCSD)

Smart Citizen Sentiment Dashboard (SCSD) is an ongoing research and artist collaboration between Moritz Behrens (UCL) and me. It is an interactive and participatory installation that lets citizens engage with and compare opinions on urgent challenges in their cities and across connected cities. SCSD translates instant citizen feedback facilitated by custom-made urban devices into a visual language, which is displayed in real time on a media facade or urban screen. The media facade and its surrounding turn into a stage for social encounter and debate. The aim is to create an open, aesthetic dialogue about the quality of urban living, by playfully allowing people to convey their opinion about urgent challenges.

The project has been originally commissioned by Verve Cultural in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
