|Abstract: ||Games have been put forward as a way of easing participatory processes ever since the sixties, having the ability to give form to cooperative environments and support actor interaction. By using serious games and a specific visualization tool, a series of interviews were conducted in order to explore in a playful way, existing social and economic networks.
As such, this presentation debates to what extent can data be generated via citynamics – alternative means to collect data from the city for the city, based on a socio-engaging approach – social dynamics – rather than using obsolete indicators e.g. GDP. We use the term citynamics to define a variety of heterogeneous data sources representing the different social and spatial transformations of the relation between economics and urbanisation.|
