Remapping LA: Hollywould

Hollywood Boulevard, 2008.

In Remapping LA: Hollywould, the community around Hollywood Boulevard investigated and articulated their interpretation of the urban neighborhood’s physical, cultural and social identities, resulting in a showing at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibits (LACE). 

Community organizations from around Hollywood Boulevard collected geotagged, keyworded images, audio and video using cutting-edge technology such as interpretive databases, online media and mobile computing. These were fused together into mobile and collective experiences using technology developed at REMAP.

The collective experience built upon research and creativity through technological experimentation and social engagement.

A collaboration with LA Freewaves.
