In the quiet streets of suburbia how are ‘our’ spaces claimed or reclaimed through technology?
Good Neighbours is an interactive documentary-in-the-making by Klasien van de Zandschulp (NL) and Dr. Natalie Dixon (ZA). Currently in research phase, Good Neighbours explores the emerging culture of intimate neighbourhood surveillance in Johannesburg and Amsterdam. How does mobile technology configure neighbourhoods as spaces of inclusion for some and exclusion for others?
