NYC Foresight is a hypothetical department of the City of New York that explores the impacts and effects of ubiquitous technology, data and connectivity on our interactions with one another and our daily routine in cities.
It is interested in the implications of this technology and aims to explore ways of designing services that acknowledges people’s complexities, contradictions and superstitions.
Through pilot programs, probes and regulations it establishes regulated ways of disguise, dislocation and data trail manipulations that provide small pockets of anonymity in the age of ubiquitous exposure, tracking and objectivity to protect and preserve our citizens digital health.
Visit us at the Festival of Ideas! The Department of Foresight will hold office hours in Storefront of Architecture’s & Raumlabor’s Spacebuster on May 4th, 2013 from 12:15 - 1:00pm. The department will showcase the findings of the ‘Digital Serenity’ pilot and invite participants to submit applications to request the developed services and regulations for their own neighborhoods.
