If the landscape can be perceived as an image produced by society then the landscape is created through the medium of communication.
Everything Is A Remix: THE MATRIX
By Rob G. Wilson.
“Individuals inside cities and elsewhere are creating maps for themselves and in fact giving us their own narrative of what a cityscape is about. They are telling us what is important to them, and they’re mapping the kinds of things that previously would not be mapped. It’s becoming part of the creation of a culture of a city.”
Wayne Enterprises TV Commercial
By Jonathan MacIntosh (aka @radicalbytes)
Here there are some good points for a cityscape reflection and how companies are determining cities now through the media narrative. i.e. Smart Cities.
Here is the first remixed component of the Batman Reimagined project. What would a television commercial for Wayne Enterprises look like? Now you can see for yourself.
It’s no secret that Batman is funded and equipped via Bruce Wayne’s multi-billion dollar fortune and through his ownership of Wayne Enterprises. What you might not know is that Wayne Enterprises is a massive company of truly Orwellian proportions. If the corporation really existed it would most likely be the largest, most powerful company on the planet - bigger than General Electric, Boeing, Chevron and Lockheed Martin combined.
Although primarily known as a military defense contractor, Wayne Enterprises is actually comprised of dozens of subsidiaries involved in all sectors of the economy in Gotham City and around the world (operating in 190 countries). The Wayne family corporation literally built most of Gotham over the years and still owns a good chunk of the city today.
Based on this extensive list of properties and holdings, Forbes’ magazine seems to have severely underestimated the value of the company in their 2007 list of the 25 Largest Fictional Companies. Forbes estimated Wayne Enterprises sales at only $31.3 billion which is a ridiculously low figure for such an omnipresent multinational corporation.
