Take a view on the city

to piece this puzzle together you’ll need a QR code reader

It’s difficult to make fish out of fish soup. The city can crumble into atoms and then re-code itself within seconds. People are lego toys, not the city!
Mark Allen (Property Regeneration Consultant, Shoreditch)

Whilst capital is international, rules are local. We’re facing an unhealthy moment in history where the city is an ever changing puzzle with unknown rules.
Joana Siegenberg (Pensioner, Whitechapel)

Economists have judged risk based on probabilities. The city is not mathematical, it’s a living organ that has (credit) crunched all of us.
Robert Pullman (Hedge Fund Mgr, Moorgate)

If I roll over surfaces I don’t understand, I might be faster than the city or I might fail. I might beat the curves, the spears and the voids. I take the risk.
Sorboots (Inline Skater, Homerton)

The same signs that tell us to fear, also tell us not to be afraid. Everything is possible if the soul is not small.

Team B – location 3 (winner photo), originally uploaded by speed of reaction.

Great first try of speed of reaction at the Sandpit last Monday. People enjoyed it and that was very rewarding! Also a few things to think about and tweak before the big final event on the 27th March.
Above, the winner for most creative photo!
The QR code message to be answered once captured and decoded was:
“You are in need of a new postcode system. Find a new code to use.”

The Foundry

a gallery, a music hub, a radio show, an icon of Shoreditch – the centre of London’s alternative art scene for over a decade and one of the areas of highest artist density in the world.
It’s a sign of the times: transformations, and S.O.R. is happy to be part of this journey holding the post-event exhibition in its vaults and bar area.

The Foundry

It couldn’t be anywhere else.

The Foundry has been the centre of London’s alternative art scene for over a decade – www.foundry.tv

But is this east London iconic gallery soon being shifted out to make way for a hotel and retail complex? – http://www.guardian.co.uk/artanddesign/2010/feb/03/foundry-gallery-set-to-close
