  • What is the city? • “The city is not an organism” (Marshall 2009: 132) • Digital urbanism/s are more than “augmented physical spaces” (Aurigi & Di Cindio 2008) • The city is an assemblage of human and non-human, lived and produced socially as spaces (Lefevre 1991) • The city is an imaginary (Prakash 2008) • Politics, the imaginary and utopia (Bahnisch 2009) • Urbanism is recombinative (Shane 2007) 4
  • The recombinant city, digital culture/s and heterotopias • Shane (2007) – Armatures, enclaves and heterotopias • Shaping digital heterotopias – There are no ‘digital natives’ – Co-creating digital literacies (Hartley 2009) – The ‘creative city’ is not singular – Mapping the traces of urban affinities 5
  • Many Brisbanes http://phenomenologist.deviantart.com/gallery/ – Not “our” Brisbane but many Brisbanes – The imaginative structure of the city – Mobilities, affinity and place 6
  • Many Brisbanes – the ‘creatives’ • Lea et al (2009), The Creative Tropical City – http:// www.creative.org.au/linkboard/results.chtml?filename_num =262563 • What are the wellsprings of creativity? • How do heterotopias, armatures and enclaves intersect? • What creates affinity? • Creativity beyond the ‘creatives’ 7
  • Research questions • What are the specificities of place in Brisbane? • How is the city imagined? • How can the imaginative structure of the city be articulated to online communities, innovatively and inclusively? • What place for affect in online spaces? 8
  • Questions, comments, feedback • Thanks! 9
