      Christian Nold
      Artist, designer and researcher working to develop new participatory models and technologies for communal representation. In 2001 he wrote the book “Mobile Vulgus,” which examined the psychosomatic history of the political crowd. Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2004, Nold has led many large-scale participatory mapping projects. In particular his “Bio Mapping” projects have been staged in many countries with thousands of participants. For the last eight years, Nold has been developing a tool-kit of technologies that blend together human and non-human sensors for local governance. In 2010, Nold launched an experimental currency, the “Bijlmer Euro,” which allows people to follow where their money moves. In 2011 he published the book, “The Internet of People for a Post-Oil World”, co-written with Rob van Kranenburg. He is currently researching a PhD in the Extreme Citizen Science group at UCl.
