La Fura dels Baus raises a genuine theatrical experience of a Smart City

How will it be to live in the SmartCities of the future? How will it feel to live in an environment where technology prevails at its purest? Do you dare to travel to a place governed by the criteria of increased intelligence and efficiency?

M.U.R.S. will dampen all the questions to those who will experience this 2.0 installation. It’ll be the experience of living in a prototypical world where the premises of the smart cities are carried to the limit. It will include all aspects of this revolution, without exception: economy, mobility, ecology, citizenship, governance and digital life. This will be, with no doubt, the first SmartShow history, with the unmistakable stamp of La Fura.

Future Cities Will Be Living, Reactive & Think for Themselves

The Cities Summit, organised by RE.WORK, will take place over two days on 4-5 December, at The Crystal, London, and will showcase the opportunities of accelerating technologies and their impact on our urban areas.

By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in cities. What will this…

Smart cities and the intrinsic desirability myth

El imaginario construido en torno a la smart city y a la ciudad digital contemporánea es, en buena medida, la plasmación en el espacio de un relato previo y más amplio en torno a la incorporación a la sociedad de las tecnologías digitales. En este sentido, se alimenta de ideas sobre la irreversibilidad del desarrollo tecnológico (lo quieras o no, tendrán que incorporarte; quien se incorpore el primero podrá ser el líder de esta revolución; etc.) y su deseabilidad. La ciudad inteligente se convierte, de esta manera, en el último estadio de una infiltración total de la infraestrcutura digital en todos sus aspectos técnicos e ideológicos sobre la capa física de la vida en la era digital, sus instituciones y su sistema de gobierno. 

I believe that the kind of world envisioned by ubiquitous computing will never have the perfectly seamless or stable infrastructure necessary to make it work at its most global and totalising scale. Computer technologies, including the internet, have always rolled out unevenly and without clear plans—and much of our technological infrastructure is already a mash of disparate parts made to do the best they can until they break, or something better comes along.

GALLOWAY, Anne (2008), A Brief History of the Future of Urban Computing and Locative Media, disertación de tesis doctoral, Carleton University Ottawa

In other words, infrastructures are messy. The messiness that we experience in laboratory ubiquitous computing infrastructures is not a property of prototype technologies, of the bleeding edge, or of pragmatic compromise; messiness is a property of infrastructure itself. Infrastructures are inherently messy; uneven in their operation and their availability. The notion of a seamless and uniform infrastructure is, at best, a chimera, and at worst, to draw on aboriginal Australian myth, a mulywonk—a fearsome creature that might be invoked to steer people away from certain paths, places, or actions.
