VR Exhibition: Predictive Cities

Venue: Online

Predictive Cities is an exhibition conceived by artist and filmmaker Manu Luksch for the BISR Urban Intersections Experimental Collective. Its run, originally for summer 2021 only, has been extended through to the end of 2021 (31 December 2021).

The exhibition, situated in the virtual space of a Mozilla Hubs VR chatroom, contains two kinds of objects. First, memes that spawn a selection of Luksch’s artworks interrogating network urbanism and citizen agency, and second, spherical photographs of Songdo, South Korea, internationally famous as case study of greenfield smart cities. The series Songdo is custom-made for VR and shown the first time at this occasion.

Linked to the exhibition was the BISR Urban Intersections Public Colloquium, held online 1 July 2021 at 2pm, where Manu Luksch was in conversation with Melissa Butcher, Sarah Keenan, Joel McKim and Scott Rodgers. The colloquium has been edited into a podcast episode for Mediapolis: A Journal of Cities and Culture.
