  6. 6. Watching and talking“We started by studying how people use plazas. We mounted time-lapse cameras overlooking the plazas and recorded daily patterns. We talked to people to find where they came from, where they worked, how frequently they used the place and what they thought of it. But mostly, we watched people to see what they did.”William H. WhyteThe Social Life of Small Urban Spaces (1980)

  25. 25. “The cartographic conventions of the base map are an expression of a singular notion of urban space – one that favors the street over the route, the static over the temporal, and the formal over the subjective. As locative media projects are created that build upon the datum of common base maps, they are structuring a collaborative notion of space within this predefined conception of the city.” Alison Sant“Redefining the Basemap” 2006 http://www.intelligentagent.com/archive/ Vol6_No2_interactive_city_sant.htm
