every thing every time

What stories can be uncovered from a city?

every thing every time, a new flip-dot artwork by Naho Matsuda, takes information from our interactions within the city to tell a new story about the people and the places of Manchester.

With the rise of the ‘Smart City’ asking important questions of what we want from the future, where do we see ourselves in it? As Manchester’s citizens interact with the city, a poem is generated, made anonymous and resonated across several locations, from a garden centre to a public library; a university square to a city laboratory.

the sun rises

the streets are empty

today is the last day of the term

the car park is almost empty

the traffic light turns green

the cleaning shift starts

the bus is on time

and it is colder than yesterday

every thing every time will be placed within the public realm across the Oxford Corridor from the 22nd June until 9th July; locations include Hulme Community Garden Centre, University Place at the University of Manchester and CityLabs 1.0.

Manchester Central Library will host an extended run of the work outside the Wolfson Reading Room from 22 June until 9 August
