City Murmur‘s goal is to show how the media portray different areas of a particular city through the attention that is given to each street. A ‘media geography’ is therefore created, which intersects with the geographical actuality of the city.
CityMurmur does not address maps and diagrams as mere representations but as tools for action. They want to build a ‘time based narrative’ which, over time, can be used for research and analysis. This is what we love about this project; it is the active collection of valuable data through an accessible, interactive and elegant system.
