Group DescriptionThe Futurescape City Tours depends upon a set of methods that rely on citizen-driven agendas, the importance of place and materiality, the relevance of multiple timescapes, and the use of photography as a tool for deliberation. In the fall of 2012, the Center conducted a pilot in Phoenix led by Cynthia Selin, Kelly Campbell-Rawlings, and Kathryn de Ridder-Vignone in which 15 citizens participated in a three-part deliberative exercise, one of which was an all day walking tour of Phoenix.
During this tour, citizens used photography to document their visions of changes in the sociotechnical landscape. They were asked to document places they saw the past persisting, the signs of the present, and the future emerging, paying particular attention to the role of technologies in these locations.
Through the use of these alternative approaches to public engagement, the FCT aims to build capacities among participants to appreciate their role in the trade-offs, path dependencies, and choices which shape technologies and their urban landscape.
