Digital Media PhD Student David Jimison and Joo Youn Paek have been awarded a commission for their piece Too Smart City, as part of the Architecture League's exhibition, Situated Technologies: Toward the Sentient City.

Too Smart City is a set of street furniture""a trash can, a bench, and an information sign""augmented with computational intelligence and location awareness. In each, the furniture is rendered near useless by its hyper-enthusiastic use of technology to facilitate its service. The result is a comical interactive piece that enables the public to engage in some of the critical issues involved in next generation public infrastructure.
