Dédaleest une agence dédiée à la culture, aux nouvelles technologies et à l’innovation sociale en Europe.
Son champ d’activité recouvre la production artistique, l’événementiel, la recherche, le conseil aux collectivités publiques et aux institutions européennes. Elle s’intéresse tout particulièrement à l’innovation et aux nouveaux usages dans des domaines en mutation tels que l’urbanisme, les médias, la création artistique, le patrimoine culturel, l’environnement ou encore l’éducation.
Figure 2. Data Collection Methods. A. The website used to collect votes. Participants were presented a random pair of images and voted by clicking on one in response to the question. B. Robustness of the urban perception metric (Q). B is the square of the Pearson correlation between two disjoint subsets of votes of size v containing the same number of images.
Figure 4. Contrasts in urban perception. A. Scatter plot showing the Q-scores obtained for each image, city and question. Top and bottom whiskers represent one standard deviation. B. Moran’s I z-scores for each city and question (all p-values,0.01, see SM). C. Spatial correlograms showing the decay of spatial autocorrelation as a function of distance. D–F. Map of NYC showing statistically significant clusters of high -and low- Qscores for the perception of safety, class and uniqueness according to Getis Gi* statistic. Green shows clusters of positive perceptions (high Q-scores) and red shows clusters of negative perceptions (low Q-scores).
"Until now (…) our ability to understand the effect of a city’s built environment on social and economic outcomes has been limited by the lack of quantitative data on urban perception. Here, we build on the intuition that inequality is partly conspicuous to create quantitative measure of a city’s contrasts. Using thousands of geo-tagged images, we measure the perception of safety, class and uniqueness; in the cities of Boston and New York in the United States, and Linz and Salzburg in Austria, finding that the range of perceptions elicited by the images of New York and Boston is larger than the range of perceptions elicited by images from Linz and Salzburg. We interpret this as evidence that the cityscapes of Boston and New York are more contrasting, or unequal, than those of Linz and Salzburg".
Filmed in 2011 at the artist’s studio in Topanga, CA. Directed by Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman of Supermarché.
"It’s about to be over, the idea that the car runs free, those days are about to close." Conceptual artist Chris Burden created this kinetic sculpture to “provoke the energy of a city.” Says Burden, “The noise, the continuous flow of the trains, and the speeding toy cars, produces in the viewer the stress of living in a dynamic, active and bustling 21st Century city.”
