A series of temporary urban art interventions taking place in the City of Sydney.
While Melbourne may be more known for it’s laneways, the City of Sydney has undertaken to temporarily transform eight laneways in Sydney´s CBD. Eight proposals were selected by Curator and urban designer Dr Steffen Lehmann. The proposed Laneways By George! 2009 - Hidden Networks temporary artworks are intended to be installed for the City of Sydney's Art & About event in October.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
