Background The Digital Cities exhibitions looked at how digital technology helps us understand and improve the planning and experience of our city. The exhibition also looked at the impact on movement in cities: how communication and information technologies enhance a person's experience of place; how people interpret cities with the usc of technology; and how mapping influences the design and planning of cities. It also foregrounded issues such as privacy and security. Contribution The author has contributed by providing a physical model of his PhD thesis, the LED stick, to the exhibition. An image of the physical artwork was not included into the catalogue but a rendering (see image 12) of a wall clad with the prototype. The model presented represented two main research interests ofthe author, the topic of media facades and in particular voxel facades or Chromatophoric Architecture. SignifIcance The exhibition presented work of researchers in a digital city domain to a wider audience, explaining how digital technology helps us understand and improve the planning and experience of our city. The participating universities and researchers (slich as the Bartlett) demonstrate the interest and the quality of the exhibition, as well as the location in the Building Center in London and being cllrated by Sir Terry Farrell. The exhibition contribution was closely connected to the PhD thesis and had its subsequent foHow up by the publishing the research in Media facades - History, Technology, Content (Haeusler, 2009) and Chromatophoric Architecture (Haeusler, 2010).
