STEFAN RUIZ SHIZUKA YOKOMIZO, DEAR STRANGER… | THE HARLOW Posted on November 16, 2012 by Isabella Cecconi Dear Stranger, I am an artist working on a photographic project which involves people I do not know…I would like to take a photograph of you standing in your front room from the street in the evening. A camera will be set outside the window on the street. If you do not mind being photographed, please stand in the room and look into the camera through the window for 10 minutes on __-__-__ (date and time)…I will take your picture and then leave…we will remain strangers to each other…If you do not want to get involved, please simply draw your curtains to show your refusal…I really hope to see you from the window. The amazing Shizuka Yokomizo’s photo project, came from running around London with huge telephoto lens, trying to glimpse unsuspecting people through the windows of their flats. Shizuka Yokomizo, Japanese by birth, photographer by choice, has been living in London for more than 15 years. www.shizukayokomizo.com
Jon Rafman Celebration: The town that Disney built Celebration was intended to be a carefully-planned haven for the wholesome family values for which Disney likes to be known. In many ways a throwback to simpler times, it was designed to have a vibrant downtown core which encouraged walking rather than driving, and no mega-malls on the outskirts. While Disney controlled all aspects of construction they were careful not to make the town part of their brand. This means that you won’t see Mickey Mouse ears anywhere. However a number of residential ‘villages’ surround the downtown area featuring public buildings with somewhat whimsical designs created by prominent architects. Philip Johnson’s Town Hall is perhaps the most unusual – crowded pillars being a very postmodern take on the imposing columns often used in such buildings. The Post Office designed by Michael Graves has a toy-like quality to it. The Bank of America building has a tower with an exterior staircase, while the Sun Trust bank has the air of a 1950s diner.

Soundcities | La Panacée Installation, 2010 – 2015 Le projet d’installation Soundcities s’inscrit dans le prolongement de la base de données interactive éponyme initiée par Stanza en 1995, pour apparaître sur le web en 2004 dans sa version actuelle, renouvelée en permanence. est la première base de données en open source rassemblant les sons des villes grâce à des captations sur le terrain, à des compilations de sources existantes, et ouverte aux contributions en ligne. Le site permet en outre de composer ses propres cartographies sonores et de mixer les sources.Les recherches de Stanza se concentrent sur les possibilités de représenter et d’interpréter des données sonores, mais aussi de mettre en relation des données issues des champs du contrôle urbain (trafic, surveillance, environnement) avec un espace concret, visualisable, expérimentable physiquement par la figure du flâneur.
