"You can see the future of cities": this is what says the website presenting New Songdo City. This project of a "u-City" ("u" for ubiquitous computing, a post-desktop model of human-computer interaction) is lying at the heart of the new Incheon's Free Economic Zone project in South Korea. Built from scratch on an artificial land taken from the sea, this city still under construction was the theater of this mapping piece.
Questionning the relationship between the ancient and the new, and the place of human in such a controlled and optimized environment, this piece might have an aftertaste of apocalypse.
