There is urban fabric, the hard stuff also called infrastructure: roads, streets, cables, lanes, tunnels, and there is social fabric: the operating system that runs the city. The social fabric is made up of millions of little connections and pathways that become like threads when used again and again by the people who stitch the world together everyday. The KIOSK/XIAOMAIBU project is looking at the phenomenon of the kiosk, a place that become a nodal point in the connections of seemingly insubstantial threads, that even though abstract are real. When we exchange objects, other things are exchanged: imperceptible, invisible. The city is hardware and the kiosk is part of the city software operating system. We are this software and we wear it like clothing, we put it on, we engage and we reveal.
