In the virtual exhibition Connected refugees (available on Artistic Lab), you can follow Ai Weiwei and mobility sociologist Mimi Sheller’s art-social science investigation month by month.

According to Hartmut Rosa, mobility no longer refers to space but to the time required to travel across that space. The ever-present display systems at train stations tend to reinforce that very same perception of travel time as an objective, a measurable length of time, rather than a feeling wherein each duration is variable. This experimental project, led by artist-researchers at EnsadLab, aims at reintroducing a subjective relation to time and place at train stations by means of interactive hourglasses.

Based on an original approach combining art and science, this project looks at virtual mobility practices and their environmental impact. The four-person research team, composed of artists, researchers and professionals, studies the functional and sensitive qualities that underlie our attachment to ICT and looks at how young people project themselves in a future that is limited in terms of material and energy resources, and hence physical and virtual mobility.
