Urban Interventions (3)  is a collaborative installation with Black Cube Collective & Gayfield Creative Spaces based in Edinburgh. Street Signs have been installed  in the local residential area of New Town / Broughton as well as in the commercially orientated City Centre of Edinburgh. The positive messages of the signs bring integrative values to these areas. This project attempts to challenge the way people think, act and feel within the environments they inhabit.   The physical installation process is supported by Google Reverse Image Search technology. This will allow people with a smart phone to photograph the sign and instruct Google to search its image database for more information and hyperlinks about the project. Apps used to enable this for iOS are Amad Arwat's Reverse Image Search; and for Android Image Search v2.9  Building on recently published work by the Pew Research Centre showing a younger and impoverished demographic of people wholly dependent on their smartphone for essential social functioning; this project attempts to tap into that groups use of technology to bring them into a closer interaction with public art, and the reasons why people make art.  [Urban Interventions 3 is also running concurrently at: CONVERGE 2016, Visual Arts Scotland, Scottish National Gallery Academy Building. 29th January - 20th February 2016]   http://www.pewinternet.org/2015/04/01/chapter-one-a-portrait-of-smartphone-ownership/    http://www.cnbc.com/2015/04/01/for-more-poor-americans-smartphones-are-lifelines.html
