Nowville is an evolving interactive paper city. Installed in the Arcade of Bush House, over two months anyone can become a citizen and decide on all aspects of its running – from whether we use money, to if prisons should exist.
Would we make a better world than this one if we had complete control?
The City of Nowville
21st November 2017 to 26th January 2018
Commissioned by King’s College London
Nowville is an evolving interactive sculpture that will tell the story of a future city, building on and embellishing the vision of King’s staff and students at The Arcade at Bush House. Beginning as a blank canvas of a paper model city, this silent metropolis – empty apart from rows of ghostly buildings, blank billboards and winding streets – will be transformed into a collective vision of the future.
You are invited to help build the city of Nowville – the evolving miniature metropolis that will play out your utopian dreams. Come and sign up as a citizen and move your tiny avatar through the city’s streets, ride its railway and project your fantasies on its glowing billboards.
