Dr. Shannon Mattern of The City is Not a Computer
Virtual/ Online Event with Professional Live Captions in English
Dr. Shannon Mattern is a contributing writer for Places. Mattern’s research and teaching address how the forms and materialities of media are related to the spaces (architectural, urban, and conceptual) they create and inhabit. She writes about libraries and archives, media infrastructures, the material qualities of media objects, media companies’ headquarters and sites of media-related labor, place branding, public design projects, urban media art, and mediated sensation. She is the author of The New Downtown Library; Deep Mapping the Mxedia City; and Code and Clay, Data and Dirt: 5000 Years of Urban Media, all published by the University of Minnesota Press. Her latest book, A City Is Not a Computer, the second volume of Places Books, is an expansion of several of her Places articles.
