Exploring a City Through Social Media Snapshots
City data talks, and the creators of a On Broadway interactive project are listening
First exhibited in December, On Broadway offers viewers a new way to explore and envision New York City through the gathered, organized, and near-countless recorded moments of its residents and visitors. Its creators suggest that modern cities ‘talk’ about their trends, functions, and foibles not just through shared statistical sets, but also via social media content and check-ins.
The project asks, then, “How can we use these new information sources to represent the 21st century city?”
