Liminal Ghettos

How can we use Big Data to uncover our cities’ shifting segregation patterns? Through the exhibition at the Porto Design Biennale, CRA-Carlo Ratti Associati and MIT Senseable City Lab strive to cast a new light on the issue of social segregation, in Porto and other cities around the world. Analyzing big data that shows people’s movements within urban boundaries, it proposes an alternative interpretation to the century-old idea of ghetto. It aims to illuminate the subtle and insidious ways in which segregation works today.

Workshops Museum of Vibrant Matter

Matéria Viva

Open call for the Museum of Vibrant Matter expeditions and workshops. The Museum of Vibrant Matter asks us to pay attention and attune to our local biological, technical and hybrid materialities as an act of care towards ourselves, other living things, our soils, water and geology. The Museum of Vibrant Matter comprises three workshops that will explore different material environments in the local territory; collect/gather matter or material samples; experiment with making materials and artefacts; and enter new records into the Archive of Vibrant Matter.
