Our city is changing, developing new sensory organs to assist us in everyday urban life. But what happens to the emotional potential of a smart city? Who measures and who exposes it?

It is often our archaic needs that bring the citizens of a city together. Our „Vienna Summer Scouts“ carefully observe their urban environment to report to the city data center when summer moves into the city based on 7 curious measurements. In our vision, the smart service-oriented city has matured into a smart empathetic city.

The seven summer scouts are still touring with “Hello, Robot” – we believe, they are currently in Weil am Rhein, at Vitra Museum, after stops in Belgium, Japan, Austria, and many more... We miss them but are equally happy they get to see the world.
