On 12 September 2007, Distance Lab hosted an Open Studio event focussed on the themes of "Smart Cities" and "Sports over a Distance".
This is the presentation by Susanne Seitinger, a PhD candidate in the Smart Cities group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab in the USA. She talked about her latest project, a system of programmable solar-powered lighting units called "Urban Pixels" that can be used to create new effects in the city that blur the boundary between urban lighting and display. She also touched on other projects at MIT investigating how digital media and networking technologies can be incorporated into the design of urban spaces and mediate our relationships with cities.
In addition to a Masters from the Media Lab, Susanne holds a Masters in City Planning from MIT and a Bachelors degree in Architecture from Princeton University.
