Visions of the future had always been a place of speculation for mobility. In 2030 individual mobility became strongly linked to the developments of digitally augmented urban spaces, automated driving and personalized data exchange between the human body and its environment. Traffic since then is a constant flow. No more need for parked vehicles. Pedestrian areas regained their lost space from cars. Repercussions had been seen on a social, economic and ecological level. Surveillance and assisting technologies transformed the city and its inhabitants into a flow of data, blurring the boundaries between body, car and architecture. New forms of perception and performance arose from digital technologies. They allowed for each one of us to selectively allow or reject individual aspects of the city. The car transformed from being a viewing machine for manoeuvring in traffic towards a sensorial experience machine. Driving through the city now puts our senses and sensibilities into the foreground and allows us to interact with the urban context in completely new ways. We interact, we poke along temporary bonds and adjacencies, we float through the city and its auto-mobiles turned into social media. This instant personalization caters to your interest. You are on the move. You are here and away. Pokeville, a new place for individual and communal negotiations and exchange – and why not poke back? :)
