Project Description:
denCity.net creates virtual networks of real places. qr-codes (2d barcodes) are used to tag buildings and urban sites which can be read by a mobile camera phone. The user simply shoots them and logs in to denCity.net. The service provides information to the specific place, and from there, one can browse through the web of tags.

Anyone can tag places and thus create a new denCity-site. All relevant information and data links concerning the particular user-request are released cartographically and depend on the desired degree of locality.

This information exchange layer, through the tags's crosslinkings and referencing among each other, features a multidimensionality which oscillates between the local and the virtual.The tags are digital yet visible marks in the city. At the same time virtual and physical addresses. They establish interfaces between locality and virtuality.
