Interview of Bruno Giorgini and Mariateresa Sartori on their artscience project on Physics of the City

I have just interviewed Bruno Giorgini and Mariateresa Sartori

( the interview is in french)

He is a physicist and she an artist and they have been collaborating on a project

at IMERA in Marseille on the Physics of the City:

Mariateresa , the video artist explains:

 

The idea is to research the complexity degree in the mobility phenomena, assumed as an expression of the social composition and dynamics, which are in Marseille especially rich of variability and intertwined of differences. This project would be performed working with the phisicist Bruno Giorgini in view of building up a common frame with a visual and multimedia communication system on the Marseille complex mobility networks. After collecting information, data, images and movies we shall analyze the material, in order to construct a visual and multimedia communication system showing complexity and beauty of the Marseille mobility.

 

Bruno Giorgini the physicist explains:

 

Essentially the Physics of the City, the main idea being to research the complexity degree in the mobility phenomena, assumed as an expression of the social composition and dynamics, which are in Marseille rich of variability and intertwined of differences. A part of this project would be performed working with an artist, Mariateresa Sartori, in view of building up a common frame with a visual and multimedia communication system on the Marseille complex mobility networks. Finally I would like to collect all the experiences, the theoretical assumptions and results, not only mathematical but also philosophical and methodological, often implicit, that from ten years are produced in the Physics of the City Laboratory context, i.e. may be to write a book on this subject. Or, at least, to prepare the materials for a book with the same title of this project.
