Urban Screens

Urban Screens Manchester 07 explores the conditions for urban screens from a multitude of perspectives, making it relevant to media specialists, designers, artists, architects, urban planners, broadcasters and theorists.

I went to the first Urban Screens in Amsterdam 05. Screen and display technologies and their public space application have moved on hugely since then. It is an important conference for anyone who wants to know how advertising is rapidly taking over virtually every surface of inner cities. Artists and local communities are using these platforms. Since 2000 Times Square’s Astrovision screen has dedicated one minute ( 59th minute to be exact) in sixty to artistic content attracting some top names. What do you think about BBC Big Screens? Who is in control and can I be tracked? Go along and find out more.
