Urban Screens 09: The City as Interface

Just got a mail to an event in Amsterdam taking place on the 4th of December: “Urban Screens 09: The City as Interface”

In their words:” Urban Screens is a series of events and seminars that has been organized around the theme of outdoor display screens (LED signs, plasma screens, projection boards, information terminals as well as intelligent architectural surfaces) in urban areas. It supports the idea of using public space as a platform for creation and cultural exchange, strengthening the local economy and encouraging public discussion.”
