an infographically-inspired exhibition at the Tate Modern addressing the major issues facing todayÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s cities, such as size, speed, form, density & diversity. the exhibition draws on data originally assembled for the 10th International Architecture Exhibition at the 2006 Venice Biennale. the show presents films, videos & photographs by more than 20 artists and architects to offer subjective & intimate interpretations of urban conditions in all 10 cities.
wooden models created from data compiled by the LSE represent the population density in London, Mexico City, Mumbai & Cairo. clear information graphics are complemented by bold typographic statements. the restrained graphic language communicates key facts that add context to the artwork on display.
