Moodwall / Studio Klink and Urban Alliance Media architecture collective Urban Alliance has recently finished the Moodwall: a 24 meter long interactive light installation in Amsterdam. The Moodwall is situated in a pedestrian tunnel and interacts with people passing by, improving the atmosphere in the tunnel and making people happy and feel less unsafe. The interactive urban wallpaper is built out of about 2500 leds behind a ribbed semi-transparent wall. The curves in the wall make it less suitable for grafitti and improve the visibility of the content for the side.

The Greatest Books of All Time, As Voted by 125 Famous Authors “Reading is the nourishment that lets you do interesting work,” Jennifer Egan once said. This intersection of reading and writing is both a necessary bi-directional life skill for us mere mortals and a secret of iconic writers’ success, as bespoken by their personal libraries. The Top Ten: Writers Pick Their Favorite Books asks 125 of modernity’s greatest British and American writers — including Norman Mailer, Ann Patchett, Jonathan Franzen, Claire Messud, and Joyce Carol Oates — “to provide a list, ranked, in order, of what [they] consider the ten greatest works of fiction of all time– novels, story collections, plays, or poems.” Of the 544 separate titles selected, each is assigned a reverse-order point value based on the number position at which it appears on any list — so, a book that tops a list at number one receives 10 points, and a book that graces the bottom, at number ten, receives 1 point. In introducing the lists, David Orr offers a litmus test for greatness:

Nicola Triscott Lise Autogena + Joshua Portway, Most Blue Skies (2010) I’m currently at ISEA2012, the 18th International Symposium on Electronic Art, a six-day international conference, this year taking place in Albuquerque under the glorious banner ‘Machine Wilderness’, which references the New Mexico region as an area of rapid growth and technology within vast expanses of open land.

A visualization of Web traffic around London riots - TNW Shareables GoSquared, a real-time website monitoring company based in London, has produced a visualization of how events in London unfolded over the past few days. During the riots, a number of websites signed up to GoSquared which were created for the sole purpose of making sense of the chaos, for example London Riots Map. James Gill, CEO of GoSquared, said: “Through permission from the people responsible for these sites, this gave us a very good insight into how the public were keeping track of the situation, and so the spikes in traffic we were witnessing across parts of our network were directly caused by the huge volumes of traffic on some of these sites monitoring the situation via Twitter and other sources.” The analysis starts on Monday, just as the chaos began to spill over from its original starting point in Tottenham:

Citeology - Projects Update: We have submitted a Citeology paper to alt.CHI which you can download here. Citeology looks at the relationship between research publications through their use of citations. The names of each of the 3,502 papers published at the CHI and UIST Human Computer Interaction (HCI) conferences between 1982 and 2010 are listed by year and sorted with the most cited papers in the middle. In total, 11,699 citations were made from one article to another within this collection. These citations are represented by the curved lines in the graphic, linking each paper to those that it referenced. While you are waiting for the applet to load, here are some sample Citeologies: Looking back at the music festivals of summer Don’t let the lingering heat fool you: Summer is drawing to a close and with it, the outdoor music festival season.
