MyCity belongs to a series of projects by Khoury Levit Fong that align architecture with information technology to empower the sensate body and its spatio-temporal envelope as the intimate locus of social connection.

MyCity explores the capacity for environments to respond pointedly to a subject’s actions and characteristics. The individuated connectedness is meant to expand the subject’s sphere of influence, projecting in this case, the personal Flicker gallery of any willing participant onto public space. This is achieved simply with the help of a cellphone that allows an individual to identify his or her Flicker account and trigger the public display of selected personal images.

MyCity encourages individuals to translate their web-presence into a physical reality allowing them to appropriate public space for their own use and expression.
