CityCells offers the public an interactive journey through the virtual landscapes of several cities, generated by the environmental data collected from them. The user moves in the exhibition from one marker to another. Each marker represents a city by displaying its name in a custom designed typeface (see map). By pointing the device at the marker, the visitor discovers the city cell's environmental data. Pollution, noise, light, humidity, temperature, dust: all the environmental data spring out of the citie's marker and come to life before the visitor's eyes. The geometric shapes generated represent information collected in the last twenty minutes, while the background landscape relates to the average of the last three months.
Environmental sensors have been installed in seven cities over the world
(San Francisco, Bangalore, Boston, Geneva, Rio de Janeiro, Singapore, Shanghai).
