Title: Hyper Tokyo: hypermediary situationist approach to urban daily life in the Metropolitan Area of Tokyo. (2016)

  • Author(s): Diego Iglesias Gomez.
  • Director(s): Atxu Amann Alcocer.
  • Summary: How to deal with a city built from another Nature, with another History, based on another Philosophy, whose Technology is different and manages other Representation Systems? How to read their streets, structures, spaces and relationships between them? How can we understand, from The Great Asian Megalopolises of the 21st Century? In the contemporary information society, data is updated so quickly, so many new sources are discovered with each search, and so many bits of information accumulate that formulas seek to draw static lines over a cloud of information that are recomposes with each new upload to the internet have become obsolete. This research aims to address these issues from a situationist and hypermedial approach to urban daily life in the metropolitan area of T.K.Y. A virtual space of more than 10 GB of more or less coded information including photographs, images, videos, diagrams, drawings, texts and quotations, establishing complex and mutant relationships between seemingly disjointed data that incorporate nexus and approaches nature, time, tradition, regulations, customs, technology and public space. A hypertext strategy that allows us to understand how T-Kyo has reached its current situation, built by overlaying time layers that are cyclically updated. An ever-expanding model that develops under the uncertainty of natural disasters and is able to manage the risk involved. A city that forces its inhabitants to live in constant movement through complex temporal dynamics that rely on a succession of urban interiors, infrastructure of almost nomadic ways of life. A unique overloaded image that is able to incorporate all the elements that have built its History and that build its most immediate present.
  • Abstract: How to face a city built from another Nature, with another History, based on another Philosophy, whose Technology is different and manages other Representation Systems? How to read its streets, its structures, its spaces and the relationships between them? How to understand, from The Great Asian megalopolis of the 21st century? In the contemporary information society, the data is updated so quickly, so many new sources are discovered with each search and so many bits of information accumulate, as the formulas that seek to static draw lines on a cloud of information that is recomposed with each new Internet uploads have become obsolete. This research aims to address these issues from a situational and hypermedia approach to urban daily life in the metropolitan area of T. A virtual space of more than 10 GB of more or less encoded information that includes photographs, images, videos, diagrams, drawings, texts and quotations, establishing complex and mutant relationships betweenly unrelated data that incorporate different nexuses and approaches related to nature, time, tradition, regulations, customs, technology and public space. A hypertextual strategy that allows us to understand how T-kyo has arrived at its current situation, constructed by superimposing time layers that are updated cyclically. A model in continuous expansion that develops under the uncertainty of natural disasters and that is capable of managing the risk that implies. A city that forces its inhabitants to live in constant movement through complex temporal dynamics that are supported by a succession of urban interiors, infrastructure of almost nomadic life forms. A singular overloaded image that is able to incorporate all the elements that have built its History and that build its present more immediate.
