The LIVE Singapore! exhibition is co-organised with the Singapore Art Museum and presents five different perspectives into Singapore’s urban dynamics using graphic visualisations of selected digital data generated by people in Singapore and their actions. Employing real-time data recorded and captured by a vast system of communication devices, microcontrollers and sensors commonly found in our urban environment and mapping this information onto multi-dimensional maps of Singapore, this geographical information system merges cartography, statistical analysis and data platform technology. It suggests new ways to view, understand, and ultimately navigate our city, like never before. This presentation is a convergence of art, digital media and information technology. It demonstrates the potential of this new form of visual language and its capacity to reveal interesting social, economic and mobility patterns. Singapore, the real-time city is now truly, real!
The exhibition runs from April 8th until May 1st, 2011 at SAM in the Chapel space at:
71 Bras Basah Road, Singapore 189555.
Monday to Sunday: 10am to 7pm
Friday: 10am to 9pm
Admission to the Chapel space is free.
