Eric Paulos and Tom Jenkins have a new project:
Jetsam is the first in a series of urban probes. Jetsam explores urban public trash, its meaning, patterns, and usage, as it manifests itself in cities. Through this probe we hope to uncover new opportunities for technology to emerge across urban landscapes and further connect with our emotional experiences of living in cities.
One of the things I like about Jetsam is its economy: one single artifact becomes a lens through which to see a network of civic infrastructures, communities, and rhythms.
