39: NYC Foresight

Daniel Goddemeyer and Chris Woebken attended the Royal College of Arts in London, but didn’t meet until they moved to New York City. After exchanging messages online, they discovered that they both shared an interest in technology and the way it shapes our world. New York City debuted its “Digital Roadmap” in 2012, which led Daniel and Chris to consider the implications of living in a hyper-connected city. They were inspired to form the Office for Hypothetical Futures as a way to explore ideas about technology in urban spaces. From there, NYC Foresight was created to act as a fictional department of the city of New York that tries to address the issues that come about from technology, data collection, and digital noise. Find out more about NYC Foresight and the “Digital Serenity Initiative” in this week’s show.
