AQE + Internet of Things Meetup 6 London

This post is about my experience in London on the 28-29 March at the IOT Meet up London and it Pachube’s workshop. On the 28 March Cesar García and I had the opportunity to present DCDcity project at the 6th IOT Meet up in London. DCDcity project is being developed by a study group on Fridays at the Medialab Prado’s Open Labs. It was great to have the oportunity to share our work and have feedback from people in London.

Internet of Things London Meetup – 3/28/12 from Ed Borden on Vimeo.

El pasado 28 de Marzo César García y yo tuvimos la oportunidad de presentar en el sexto Internet of Things Meetup de Londres el proyecto DCDcity. En Octubre de 2011 planteamos el proyecto para desarrollarlo dentro de los viernes OpenLab en Medialab Prado. Por diversos motivos el desarrollo del proyecto avanzaba lentamente cuando a finales de 2011 descubrimos el proyecto del “air quality egg” . Así fue como empezamos a colaborar con esta red de entusiastas de calidad del aire, dándole así un empujón a DCDcity. Continue reading »

4/4 Fabbing & cities: Barcelona Fab City

This post is the fourth of 4 posts about Digital manufacturing (fabbing) environments that we have been publishing weekly on Fridays. In these posts I have shared my research on fab labs, open innovation and smart cities, mainly in Europe and in Spain.

The fourth post is the result of a research on fab labs and their relationship with smartcities. In the last two articles I have written about two recent nodes of the global fab lab network. Although there are other fablabs in Spain, I decided to give visibility to these two initiatives in León and in Sevilla. Among all fab labs in Spain those two are giving a real opportunity to make personal production and digital manufacturing accessible and comprehensible for a wide range of people. However, the most popular manufacturing laboratory in Spain is Fab Lab Barcelona (2008). It is settled in the IAAC – Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and it is part of the Fab Lab Network. I would like to share my interest in their research on how the digital production ecosystem could make our cities smarter. Continue reading »

3/4 Fabbing & architecture: Fab Lab Sevilla

This post is the 3rd of 4 posts about Digital manufacturing (fabbing) environments that we are publishing weekly on Fridays. In these posts I will share my research on fab labs, open innovation and smart cities, mainly in Europe and in Spain.

The third post is a result of a research on fab labs in an academic context in Spain. Fab Lab Sevilla  was promoted in 2009 by the IND_Center  (Centro de Innovación y Diseño_IND ) of the University of Sevilla . It received the official acknowledgement from the Fab Lab Network  in August 2011. I am eager to share my interest for this node of the digital production ecosystem.

MercaMadrid: A Visual Topology of the Network of Food Flows

Here it is the final presentation of the project MercaMadrid: A Visual Topology of the Network of Food Flows. It was developed during Visualizar’11: Understanding Infrastructures international seminar at Medialab-Prado. I participed on it as a collaborator during the Visualizar’11.

MercaMadrid’s importance as an urban infrastructure contrasts with its slight visibility as a physical and discursive location in the city. Because its activity remains confined to specialized systems, MercaMadrid does not catch the attention of average citizens, which explains the absence of political content.
This project aims to shed some light on Madrid food flows through visualization. Using Mercamadrid open data, we plan to answer basic questions about our consumption habits, self-sustainability and how food is distributed on a daily basis. This project analyzes too how production logics have evolved in last years because of changes in our supply chain, based on an anthropological study now in progress. We are particularly interested in examining how some of the controversies which, as semiotic-material constants in the city´s ecology, circulate through food flows and contribute to define the political agenda of the city.
