Future Cities Lab is excited to announce that the Murmur Wall will be featured in Palo Alto’s Code: ART festival, June 1-3, 2017, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Palo Alto Public Art Commission. It will be on display in front of Palo Alto's city hall for four months, from June through September 2017. The Murmur Wall is an artificially intelligent, anticipatory architecture that reveals what the city is whispering, thinking, and feeling. Sharing local activity, trending topics, and whispers, the Murmur Wall will allow the people of the city to share and reflect on real-time activity. Code: ART’s goal is to reframe Palo Alto as a “laboratory for urban interventions and creative placemaking.” In order to engage and encourage interaction within the Palo Alto community, the festival will feature eight urban interventions that will activate the current downtown corridor. It should be an exciting event!
Murmur Wall is currently on display at Yerba Buena Center of the Arts until May 2017.
