Living Among Screens in the City


Screens have become the apparatuses through which we encounter the world. However, this does not simply mean that our use of screens has increased, but rather that our relationship towards them has changed the way in which we see and live. Through screens we get knowledge and communicate with other people as well as with what is all around us, particularly the urban environment. Individuals and screens have become the inseparable elements of a single communicational and social system raising the fundamental questions of its comprehension and governance. The proliferation of screens and new information and communication technologies (ICT) is accomplishing a perceptive revolution. Our goal is to study the use of screens in the city and propose a new ecosystem contributing to their better use and mastery.
