URBANtells was originally a collaboration between artists Joe Reinsel, James Rouvelle and Steve Bradley. Their work together as URBANtells focused on the intricacies between architecture, cityscape and the human and cultural geography found within any city. URBANtells’ art practice involves the use of various forms of low and high technology to engage the residents, transients and lost inhabitants of the city. The underlying concern of the collective is to use the various forms of technology in ways that foster, collect and redistribute urban culture in or as close to real time, to classify experiences, and to encode and communicate them symbolically through wireless transmitted linear and non-linear narratives.
