AirCity is a locative media project applied in the digital public space.
The system enables the user to navigate (by using a mobile phone) within the physical space
so as to activate sound locations which recount cities’ intangible realities.

AirCity is an installation involving the use of physical space, mobile devices (Android and / or iPhone),
wireless networking, mapping and sound, all articulated through PureData.
The proposal explores the possibility of activating the “invisible space” of a physical location,
from a social, political and aesthetic approach. The installation is a system by means of which
the audience can activate different areas of sound while exploring the location.

AirCity versions:

The AirCity: Words is based on words and sounds, so when the audience detects a word in the space
the word in question is reproduced which, in turn, results in the creation of full sentences.
