Fleetwood interface is an interactive urban portal born from the desire to engage its community in marking the entrance into its district.
It is a modular wooden canopy, with one side reading ‘‘Welcome to Fleetwood'', while its roof projects real-time electronic messages generated by the district's inhabitants, visible from above and beneath. The messages, collected from local moble phones and computers connected to social networking applications like Twitter or Facebook create a space of interaction between Fleetwood's community, its visitors and the rest of the world. The private screen information, projected into the public realm via pixel-like lights inside the canopy's structure also becomes part of the aerial landscape highlighting Fleetwood's location on the global physical and virtual maps.
The objective of this scheme is to record the invisible city from the information generated by its inhabitant, and reveal it in the city we actually experience, where we walk, where we wait for the bus using Fleetwood interface.
