The Urban Research Group engages the city as both site and context for a wide range of artistic inquiry and practice. A consistent thread though work produced at Eyebeam since its beginning, this research examines relations between art, technology and urban life. Current topics include contemporary conditions of public space, mobile and nomadic urban architectures, alternative platforms for communication and expression, urban agriculture and sustainable food systems, open sensor networks and new forms of civic participation, and urban interventions that identify and exploit public systems and infrastructures of the city. These investigations often lead to public engagement through exhibitions, workshops, talks and events hosted at Eyebeam and beyond.
