10.000 Moving Cities – Same but Different deals with globalized cities as changing ‘Non-Places’ in terms of Marc Augé. On a touchscreen, visitors can choose one out 21 different cities. For each city, 13 different videos are playing synchronized on 13 large LED screens including 13 sound sources. The videos are showing screen capturing’s of the 10.000 Moving Cities – Same but Different virtual reality application. Visitor discovers local, cultural, and linguistic differences among the cities, as well as similarities. The artwork explores how globalization creates “places without a local identity” – as described in Marc Augé’s essay Non-Lieux.
