CFC Media Lab Alumnus Tweets Poetic Musings with Stroll City, Interactive Media-Art Project


Stroll City will appear on Onestop subway platform screens across the city every 10 minutes from September 21 – October 5.

Shawn Micallef, CFC Media Lab Alumnus and the author of Stroll: Psychogeographic Walking Tours of Toronto (as well as EYE WEEKLY columnist/Spacing editor/flâneur extraordinaire), will be tweeting his Toronto discoveries through the Twitter handle @strollcity in addition to his own feed. Torontonians are encouraged to respond to his tweets with comments and their own discoveries over the two weeks. Click here to tweet him now!

TTC riders in the city can tweet their replies to Micallef’s texts, only to see them magically appear shortly thereafter in an ever-changing spot on the Onestop Media (http://www.onestopmedia.com) TTC network of screens, visible to over 1 million subway commuters daily.

Stroll City ran in conjunction with Culture Days, a weekend long initiative (September 24 -26) dedicated to celebrating arts and culture in the city.

Culture Days applauds The Stroll City project by Art for Commuters, Onestop and Coach House Press for its unique approach to interactivity and its embrace of the Culture Days spirit…
