UV Budapest - "Reading the city"
+
UV Budapest project was created with the aim of studying cities.
+
Combining design and research in our work method we proposed an
+
interactive intervention on the frequented Moszkva square in Budapest,
+
Hungary.
+
People who inhabit the city have to understand it in order to achieve a
+
higher living conditions/comfort. However, large cities of our age are too
+
complex and extensive to be explored in their entirety. As looking on
+
them from a human perspective they are conglomerates of
+
promising/potential/possible*** resources for individuals -  diverse
+
experiences, inspirations and personal memories.
+
The term "public space" covers more than places where anyone has the
+
right to come. Even figuratively they have to be accessible for common
+
public. While every single location takes (its on) ??? / its own  place in the urban
+
fabric they have to be readable for anyone. If so, people can sense
+
the spaces and see their values. They can be inspired and gain from
+
them.
+
Focusing on hidden values
+
We (have) * investigated such places with special characteristics in several
+
cities around Europe and we (‘ve) learnt that those places are often somehow
+
hidden. Since no tourist office or guidebook provides such information
+
we depend on other input. We can lean on local people's suggestions or
+
take a chance and try to make explorations  (by) ? ourselves. While we tested
+
our initial installation called Darkometer in different cities
+
(Barcelona, Stockholm and Tallinn) it made us wonder around. In fact
+
it became an assistant/find/tool*** to discover urban spaces with
+
hidden qualities on our way.
+
We (‘ve) concentrated on characteristics which are present but are not
+
strong enough to be recognized. They build up a network similar to
+
other layers in the city like social grid or infrastructure. The
+
question is how we can highlight this additional layer so that people
+
can experience it.
+
After studying several examples in Budapest we realized that
+
intervention is far not a sufficient way of dealing with these spots
+
because it incorporates the chance of destruction. Building any kind
+
of structure or changing the environment for a better exposure can
+
very easily demolish the value what we just wanted to highlight.
+
Motivating people
+
So instead of (inducing) ? the spots we switched to the idea of motivating
+
people explore those values by themselves. If we make them go and do
+
so we also let them share the ritual of discovering.
+
We (‘ve) created a guide which is partly hidden and needs some effort from
+
the public to be read. Its presence has to be temporary but not
+
continuous. The phenomenon of colors visible only in black light is
+
like this.
+
Creating an urban-scale guide
+
We (‘ve) created a language to transform the spaces into visual codes. They
+
represent the value of the associated place and also contain practical
+
information about it. At first we paint them as abstract signs on the
+
pavement with UV-light active paint. One sign becomes visible only
+
when someone goes closer to it. Movement activates a sensor which
+
turns on the black light lamp and makes the sign appear.
+
Guides
+
At the end all these signs together compose a directory of the
+
interesting spots. It is not like a guidebook one can hold in the hand
+
but it is a guide of urban scale, public and accessible for everyone.
+
It is interactive because people have to go there and activate the
+
sensors to see the pattern. There is a second level of
+
interactivity as well.  People using their own paint can also record and
+
share their ideas about values in the city. This process shows
+
similarities to open-source development methods of free content
+
databases like Wikipedia.
+
The guide inhabits the whole pavement of the square and becomes a
+
valuable element of the public space. It reflects the city and starts
+
to live its own life: while old marks fade out and disappear slowly
+
people leave new signs behind.

Starting Hungarian Wikitravel[edit]

Hi! So, I'd like to get the Hungarian site launched, if you'll be the go-between for it. Sound OK? --Evan 08:45, 2 October 2006 (EDT)

Of course I'm interested in starting the Hungarian Wikitravel. I've recently done a language interface file. This version can be used as a base and could be edited further. --Strapontin 07:33, 5 October 2006 (EDT)

become a docent?[edit]

You sure seem to know a lot about Budapest and Hungary (among other sites in Hungary, and likely around the world), have you considered becoming a Docent?

BTW, do you think you can help us in defining the borders between disricts in Budapest? I would really appreciate one more resident's opinion on that tricky matter. Thank you in advance. --DenisYurkin 19:07, 14 February 2007 (EST)
