At ‘Beat a Situationist. At his own game’, John Wild will discuss whether psychogeographic walking practices can be modified to research the digital city.
Streetnotes (2021) 27: 28-45
The materiality, aesthetics, logics and processes of digitality have infused the physical space of cities. We can no longer speak of a clear distinction between analogue, carbon-based, offline entities and digital, silicon-based, online representations. The relationship between digital technology and the city is a complex, more-than-human one in which the convergence of digital technology and the city can be shown to have expanded not just the space of the city but what the space of the city is. This article asks whether the Situationist International’s psychogeographic walking practices can be modified to research the specificity of the digital city.

Over the last year, I have been researching the Limehouse foreshore as part of a SPACE Art & Technology residency. My research focuses on the Limehouse Foreshore just below the towers of Canary Wharf. It brings together multiple conflicting systems: the tides of the Thames, machine learning algorithms used for high-speed trading, the growth patterns of green algae and electrical signals produced by the brain while daydreaming.
Launching: Thu 4 Mar, 12pm GMT

An online group show by [SPACE] Art + Tech residency artists, looking at how the act of play can inspire artistic processes. The work considers how gamification and gamified experiences can affect our environment, identities and relationships towards ourselves and each other.
Machinic Dreamings are the output of a machine learning generative adversarial network. Trained on 1000 photographs of a body occupying the temporary landscape of the Limehouse Foreshore.
