Lift Interactive Design Exhibition - Data Canvas: Sense Your City, October 27-31, 2015

To empower citizens to sense and make sense of their environment, Lift, swissnex San Francisco and Gray Area created a DIY sensor network to measure pollution, dust, light, sound, temperature, and humidity. We created an interactive map, opened the data, and asked our communities to use them to narrate the stories of the 7 selected cities.

With the help of an international Jury, we reviewed 34 amazing submissions by 62 creators from around the world, and chose six finalists from five countries. The winners of the challenge will be exhibited during Lift India in an interactive format.

Discover these amazing pieces in Bangalore, and continue the conversation about the cities of the future with us. Details of the exhibition and opening ceremony times can be found here.
