Stanza: Sensity [Not part of the Sofia show]

About the work:

Sensity artworks are made from the data that is collected across the urban and environment infrastructure. A network of sensors, some fixed, and some embedded, collects data which is then published online. The sensors then interpret the micro-data of the interactive city. The output from the sensors displays the emotional state of the city online and the information will be used to create installations and sculptural artifacts.

Visualizing the dynamic data around my district as an audio visual artwork. I have set up a wireless sensor network around my house in London. I live nearby a railway line, a factory, some trees and a mobile hone mast. (This is using real data). This is version three of this project. The city is made up of bits of data that change. This artwork captures this change to try to understand the underlying fabric of city space.

Sensity is part of "The Emergent City" series of works by Stanza.
