New City

New City

Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition, MoMA,
New York City, USA
24 February–12 May 2008

Conceived as part of the Design and the Elastic Mind exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA), ‘New City’ was a conceptual imagining of a giant virtual urban structure that would house the world's population.

Created by Peter Frankfurt, Alex McDowell, Greg Lynn and Imaginary Forces, ‘New City’ featured an architecturally-scaled immersive media environment that served as the trailer to the concept of a living virtual world that is parallel and simultaneous to ours.

To accompany the video-narrative, Martyn Ware of Illustrious Company created a three-dimensional soundscape composition.
