The Third Eye

The Third Eye: A 4 year multi-disciplinary project for the Culture Capitol 2010 in Essen, Germany by the art collective Cybercity Ruhr. It connects groups from Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and the United Kingdom in a process that explores “What is a city?” and “What could a city be? The project unites university researchers, high school students, artists, architects, urban planners and designers in the creation of new model future cities based on the themes Urbanism, Identity and Integration. In “THE THIRD EYE” the participants construct and exchange visions and ideas on how they live, how they want to live and how to design and plan their future urban landscapes. It consists of a real three-dimensional model, a remote-controlled video robot and a screen or TV monitor. The video robot travels through the model. The objects that it sees through its camera eye are displayed on the screen. It can be controlled at the location or via the internet. People who guide the robot through the model are able to stroll through artificial streets, look at houses and squares, and even enter one or two buildings, in this way to provide a unique perspective through the eye of the robot.
