What We Do
How is a community’s sense of place and placemaking reflected online? Where does place exist in the digital realm? As we emerge from the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020, Five10Twelve is launching a new Online Placemaking project for Pioneering Places that explores these very questions. The pilot project will be focused in Folkestone in the first instance before being rolled out to the other Pioneering Places sites – Canterbury, Dover and Ramsgate – and culminating in an Online Placemaking toolkit for other cultural venues and heritage sites, wherever they may be.
Working with support from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and in collaboration with Kent IT Consultancy, University of Kent we explored the potential use of current cloud-based and AI-as-a-service technologies to create a proof-of-concept digital solution for children-in-care to safely develop, store and access their life stories as an ongoing process and journey to support the development of young people's sense of self and identity for now and the future.
The IK Prize is presented annually by Tate for an idea that uses digital technology to innovate the way we discover, explore and enjoy British art in the Tate collection. Our idea My Tate Mate was shortlisted in 2015 for the Tate IK Prize. My Tate Mate was an innovative mobile app that used complex algorithms to match snapshots with artworks, three whole years before Google launched its own Art Selfie app.
