IO_dencies locates urbanity in a field generated by city inhabitants and by the city itself as an emancipated partner. Non-hierachical electronic networks provide experimental fields for other ways of collaborative/ connective ways of dealing with urban forces. Utopia is not the construction of a new city, utopia is the movement towards the potential of working together with the complexity of an existing big city in order to develop new forms of urban agencies. This project explores the possibilities of intervening and acting in complex urban processes taking place in distributed and translocal environments. The project creates a topological cut through the heterogeneous assemblage of physical spaces, data environments, urban imaginations, connective agencies and individual experiences, and forms a model for the complex way in which network topologies will have to be questioned.
