2-D cities

A quck reminder about the conference Urban Screens being organised by Mirjam Struppek in Amsterdam in three weeks from now. Presentations address the growing acreage of large digital moving displays that increasingly pervade our public spaces. Can the mainly commercial use of these screens be broadened to include cultural agendas? A question I hope will also be discussed: Do culture people have any more right than commercial types to fill up the visual landscape with push media? Struppek has collected an interesting array of images and project profiles at the website; if we all add to the collection, it will become a very useful resource.
