“It’s an era in which information blurs the boundaries, enabling multi-channel, cross-platform, trans-media, physico-digital user experiences. To succeed, we’ll need teams that are multi-disciplinary and individuals who can help us think visually. If we work together, the practice of ubiquitous service design will afford an intertwingularity that’s useful, usable, and desirable. The destination beckons, but the journey looks even more fun, for in the uncharted waters of futurity, it’s the map that makes the territory. Isn’t it time we set sail?”

In 1989, Ayrton Senna completed a lap of the Japanese F1 circuit in Suzuka, setting a new world record. On board was Honda’s engine telemetry system which recorded information from the car. Now, almost 20 years after his death in Imola, Honda is using that same data, along with some giant speakers and lights to recreate that incredible lap.

“[John] Rainey uses people’s Facebook profiles along with royal portraits to create sculptures, similar to the classic sculptural form of the bust, but distorted through software to create a representation of ourselves that’s caught between the digital and the physical. The result is strange hybrid forms that represent an “exploration of images, reproduction and how identity is transferred across different media”.

The IDF’s strategy of ‘walking through walls’ involves a conception of the city as not just the site but also the very medium of warfare – a flexible, almost liquid medium that is forever contingent and in flux.
