Urban Knights / 2014
The ‘black box’ refers to a system or device whereby the transfer characteristics (the input/output) maybe known or visible but the internal workings & influences upon these characteristics is unknown.
Contemporary cities are increasingly becoming like a black box.
Urban Knights is a programme of events, which provokes and promotes practical approaches to urban governance and city living. The programme brings together people (designers, architects, activists, artists, lawyers, city councillors, researchers, urban planners) who are actively producing alternatives to our given city infrastructures, norms and perceptions. Through revealing the characteristics, which define urban governance and illustrate new approaches to civic life. In presenting such works, Urban Knights aims to provoke different ways of experiencing and thinking about how we perceive, live and organise our current and future urban societies.
