Abstract

OurCity is a site-specific digital artwork designed to solicit, aggregate and visualize citizens’ views on the cities in which they live. It aims to allow people to have their voice heard in a way which is fun and engaging and reduces the gap between citizens and policymakers. OurCity builds on our previous work, VoiceYourView (Whittle et al 2010) which used similar data aggregation techniques but a completely different visualization of user-generated data. This paper revisits the key results from VoiceYourView and hence uses OurCity as an additional validation exercise to assess whether VoiceYourView results are generalizable.
