1. As the year marking the 90th anniversary of the establishment of the Bauhaus, 2009 is an appropriate year for an exhibition dedicated to the examination of the social networks of the Bauhaus movement.
    In preparation for this project, biographical details of all of the members of the Bauhaus, as well as their individual personal relationships with other members, will be systematically structured and entered into an online research database.
    The impressive volume of information resulting from this effort will then be presented in three dimensions within an illuminated 4x4meter cube at the Bauhaus University in Weimar.
    The exhibition then becomes an immersive yet highly-structured digital archive rich with historical details. Complex interrelationships will be made more accessible through the implementation of an innovative graphical interface. All visualizations of the complex network are drawn directly from the research database and presented in an intuitive computer-generated form.
    At an interactive digital tabletop, spectators can furthermore examine individual parts of the greater network in more detail.

    See impuls-bauhaus.de for more photos and descriptions.

  2. In 2014, I got the chance to visit Stockholm near the end of an incredibly hot summer. It's a charming and walkable city with a welcoming downtown core buzzing with people. There's a natural easygoing rhythm to the city, and all three nights I was there it felt magical. After dark the pedestrian streets were filled with both residents and tourists just strolling, even after retail and most restaurants had closed.

    I was very fortunate to meet up with a real mix of advocates, residents and transportation experts to discuss what's going on in the city. Most transpo devotees are familar with Sweden's incredible success of Vision Zero, a goal to eventually curb road deaths and serious injuries to zero by 2020. Many cities worldwide, especially in the United States, have now adopted various forms of it.

    However, there are many in Stockholm who've wanted more for their streets: more bike infrastructure, safer streets, enjoyable places to gather & meet and also - to factor the benefits of a more livable city, including health and well-being. In 2010, the city adopted a plan called "The Walkable City". It promotes sustainability, livability and more people-friendly Stockholm.

    Finally a great announcement! Since Streetfilms realizes some of its long form films are a bit lengthy to use bits and parts of in advocacy, we've decided that we will make excerpts available on Vimeo for many shorter segments. Thus below you will find four Stockholm pods you can view and embed to educate the masses.
