Utrecht-based data-visualisation agency CLEVERºFRANKE concluded their two-year research on Smart Cities by presenting their experiments and insights using this fictional convenience store. The research project was kicked off by co-founder of Sensor Lab, Gert Franke’s post on The Invisible Revolution. In this article, Gert argued that society will go online and that the merge between the physical and the digital world should be made more tangible. Following on this topic, Sensor Lab continued to published articles, series of experiments, and design research.
The 'Smart Market', presented as a future convenience store of the Smart City, displays its product range in technologies that empower you as a citizen with transparency on and autonomy over your data-engagement. The installation was showcased at Cirque du Data, a Data Circus event that explored the digital transformation of living environments.
Before I started constructing the installation I modelled the smart market in a 3D-modelling tool.
The installation was constructed through a steel frame and a top of opaque plastic sheets and LED tubes.
