Participatory City 2014

The Smart Citizen Sentiment Dashboard (SCSD) is an interactive participatory installation that lets citizens engage with, and comment on, urban challenges in their cities. Through a tangible interface connected to a media facade, passers-by and participants on-site can submit their sentiments, and simultaneously see the effect of their actions projected onto the facade. The tangible urban interaction device allows for an intuitive and accessible, yet identifiable and public way of expressing one’s view. The project aims to create an open, aesthetic dialogue about urban challenges and invites citizen to engage, by playfully allowing them to express their opinion and share and compare their views in the physical built environment.
