Principal Investigator

This project investigates traces of the “digital city” and its networks from multimedia districts to virtual environments and mobile devices. The role of technology in the city has been an important focus of cultural research. While earlier studies have concentrated on urban infrastructure such as electrification and transportation routes, new communications media have given rise to technological systems and networks that reorder the city. Through the workings of new communications media, the social and technological apparatus of cities is transformed, altering the terms of urban theory and representation.
