Join us for the 15th international MEX in London in March 2015. 2 days where 100 creative thinkers learn, network and define the future of digital user experience.

Sense and the City

The London Transport Museum has an exhibition entitled ‘Sense and the City‘ (until 18th March 2012) exploring how digital technologies, particularly mobile devices, are integrating into the transportation and architectural landscapes of cities.

One feature of the exhibit is a set of photographs contributed by readers of the Londonist, which show the relationship between citizens, devices and their cities. It provides some intriguing snapshots of just how pervasive digital interactions have become, quite often at the expense of admiring the beauty of the physical world.

My favourites are this one juxtaposing London’s archaic temples to telecommunications with modern tourist behaviours and this close-up portrait of a user’s intimacy with his digital device.

Food for thought in MEX Pathway #13: ‘Use quiet design principles to reduce the visual noise of mobile interface design‘.
