Nocturnal Landscapes: Urban Flows of Global Metropolises is a project that observes and analyzes cities at night from an interdisciplinary perspective.
Architects Mar Santamaria and Pablo Martínez of 300.000 Km/s use Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) methodologies and data about urban life to compare the rhythms and regions of global cities through cartographic representations. Photographer and sociologist David Schalliol captures nighttime in cities around the world with photographs selected from more than a decade of work. The photographs emphasize human interaction, highlight moments of celebration and mourning, protest and labor, memorialization and solitude.
Together, the work of 300.000 Km/s and David Schalliol provides an expansive look at global metropolises at night, combining analysis and observation, questioning the correlation of human activity and light, and revealing hidden aspects of our cities.
