Christian Nold

Community Metrics

Broadway Media Centre
throughout January

Christian NoldChristian Nold is an artist, designer, educator and author working to develop new participatory models for communal representation.  In 2001, Nold wrote ‘Mobile Vulgus’, which examined the history of the political “crowd” and set the tone for his research into participatory mapping.

For Radiator, Christian Nold will be exhibiting 'Community Metrics', an installation that allows visitors to the Broadway Media Centre to publicly rate other visitors on a number of criteria. From playful and flirty to invasive and judgmental, Nold’s work questions how statistics can create new social relations and dynamics.

Christian Nold has recently exhibited in Close to the Surface: Digital Presence, at ICA, London.
