Urban Screens Manchester 07: It’s about content!

October 11-12, 2007 | Cornerhouse & Manchester Town House, Manchester
Urban Screens Manchester 07 focused on the development of non-commercial content for big urban displays such as LED, LCD, plasma screens, media facades and projections onto buildings. What characterises these huge displays as media platforms in urban space, and which particular spatial and social situations do they create? How are they perceived? How does creative content flow from this? At the two-day international conference media experts, designers, artists, architects and broadcasters explored the vast spectrum of potential content for urban displays.
