INDUCTIVE EVOLUTION of MODERNOLOGY - Multiple eyes constructed by citizens as researchers


考现学的归纳演化 INDUCTIVE EVOLUTION of MODERNOLOGY – Multiple eyes constructed by citizens as researchers

RAD (Research for Architectural Domain)

1927年,民俗学和建筑学学者今和次郎和他的同事宣布了一项名为“考现学”的新研究。他们实实在在用自己的眼睛和双手记录了现代城市中的各种物品。例如,街上行人的衣服、发型和随身物品,餐馆破裂的杯子等。经过统计处理和分析,这些记录显示了当前城市和生活的真实情况。由于技术问题,当时的研究结果不够充分。然而,现在有可能在“城市之眼”板块对“考现学”做出改进。

我们将开发工具包去探寻城市中发生的各种环境事件,并收集相关数据。在使用工具包的同时,我们会改进并验证工具包的有效性。这将是一个强大的工具,它让人们了解城市,并参与到不断变化的城市环境中去。我们将研究它对人的心理和生理产生何种影响。

与此同时,它也指向“城市之眼”,这一概念由简·雅各布斯的“街道之眼”生发而来。换言之,我们可以发现“城市之眼”的潜力,而且这种潜力将经由作为研究者的市民变得多样化。这意味着“城市之眼”并不是单一主体的集中控制,而是每个市民的“城市权利”。更多城市之眼的实现将使城市空间向更具吸引力的方向发展。

本研究将“研究”的层面覆盖在人们的日常生活之上,发掘“市民作为研究者”积极参与城市情境,并努力收集城市的各种数据和信息的可能性。我们的目标是使“市民作为研究员”成为可能。较之监控摄像头等静态设备,这些研究员有实实在在的躯体。

这项研究将把考现学的潜力延伸至当今的时代,并展望人工智能和市民作为研究员(等同于城市之眼)合作共事的未来情景。

在展览期间,我们将使用在深圳开发的工具包收集信息并发布研究结果。通过这种参与性研究,市民作为城市研究员的潜力将更加明显。

In 1927, Wajiro KON, Scholar of folklore and architecture, and his colleagues announced a new study called “Modernology”. They literally collected the records of various objects in the modern city using their own eyes and hands. By being statistically processed and analyzed, those records showed the real figures of the modern city and lives. For technological limitations, the results were also limited. However, now that it may be possible to refine the “Modernology” as an indication of “Eyes of the City”.

We will develop the toolkits to access the various environmental happenings in the city and to collect data. While using the toolkits, we improve and verify the efficacy. This will be a powerful tool for people to understand the city and get involved in the changing urban environments. We will examine what kind of psychological and physical effect this will have on people as refractions.

At the same time, it could also indicate the alternative concept of “Eyes of the City” followed by “eyes on the street” by Jane Jacobs. In other words, we could discover the potential of the “Eyes of the City” which will be diversified by the citizens as researchers? It means that the “Eyes of the City” is not a centralized control by a single subject but “rights to the city” of every citizen. The realization of multiple urban eyes would lead the development of the more attractive urban spaces.

Overlaying the layer of “research” on the daily lives of people, this research will show the possibility of the “citizens as researchers” who actively engage to the urban situation and try to collect various data and information of the city. We aim to realize the possibilities of “citizen as researcher” who have their own physical bodies compared to the static devices such as surveillance cameras.

This research will amplify the potentials of Modernology to the present age and look at the future where AI and citizens as researcher (the same with eyes of the city) work together.

During the exhibition, we will conduct a collection using toolkits developed in Shenzhen and launch results. Through this participatory research, the potential of the citizen as a city researcher will be more visible.
