Urban Instant 2: Observations following the execution of the second urban instant

Araneda G., Claudio; Sáez G., Nicolás;


This paper reports on progress related to the “Urban Instant” project (fondecyt 11110450) developed by the author as a tool for a sys- tematic immersive/phenomenological assessment of the patterns of behavior of our visual field (photographically abstracted) regarding information in the shape of people during our navigations along the streets of any given city. Instead of simultaneous photographic journeys undertaken by a single person along the streets, in this occasion the applied method consisted of one simultaneous record made by more than a hundred voluntaries. This, we believe, might be the first urban instant ever to have been taken with this methodology. The case study remains the city of Concepcion, Chile.
