"Tap-in, tap-out, wake up"

A Smart Portrait of London explores the 'new urban world', where increasing amounts of data are produced and stored that can give new insights into the way we live.

"The digitization of our cities is invisible. But we are all part of a vast experiment, happening right now."

This film created for the event by Kevin Biderman features interviews with Tekja Co-founders Jacopo and Amanda:

We were commissioned to exhibit our [un]sustainable London house price mapping and the Melting Pot Project, two pieces that use data to communicate some of the key issues facing the city of London today.

Other artists included Human Computer Interaction (HCI) expert Mara Balestrini, designer Sarah T Gold and WikiHouse Founder Alastair Parvin.
