Non-human perspectives & Micro-Values
Mobility in camera and live-stream technologies administers the moving image with cinematic conditions that extend the human eye into commonly inaccessible environments, events and non-human perspectives, all within the immediacy of real-time. This accelerates a new economy of values, where attention, authenticity and alternative perspectives become a new form of currency in a fluctuating virtual exchange.
The spectrum of content for livestream broadens, embracing perspective from non-human agents, both animal and machine. The infinite data input from autonomous cars forms an open-source cinema, a communication device that is a city scale meta-infrastructure. In what ways can we structure this massive amount of data into a useful tool for urban design and collective thinking? We propose 3D reconstruction of environments and events from autonomous cars, animal cams, city surveillance cameras and other non-human perspectives.
