as techno involved in through the eyes of photographer martin ever. more and more people all over the world are moving into the cities and it cities are getting cramped and there's less room for new housing so not 3 architects look upwards where there is plenty of space blow the white tree is an extraordinary tower block in the southern french city of mobile yeah which aims to turn the bad reputation of living in a horror rise on its head. it's an attention grabber the white tree it will pay you surprises passers by and delights its residents. this is the balcony where we have breakfast and here we have an opportunity and this is the balcony where we just relax yes and mostly spunky is having the last of
her lamps hung she moved in a few weeks ago having sold her house in a suburb. there. in a house you're on the ground but here on the 14th floor we're in the sky we've got all new furniture to fit in with the architecture of the building. i left it to do you know. there are public spaces from the ground floor to the roof of the house is meant to be accessible through the white tree is the answer to the question of how the tower of the future will look with large terraces allow people contact with the outdoors and also bring life inside that didn't exist in the classic kind of tower pastoral it took less. even the smallest spaces at a premium especially in cities so architects are looking to the sky. a lot of people want to live in the city so we have to build upwards it will be the case that we will be using more and more spaces communally and sharing them. this
past. here houses are placed on top of a building and the whole thing has been built over a city highway and such creative solutions are not limited to the outskirts of paris but when is there one here in sco we have to construct $150.00 new homes per year in a city that's completely built up to them also so we have to go upwards. if we change to. the biggest challenge is doing it in a way that the residents will accept. because you know because with the book was not with you. that's a special challenge because france has had difficult experiences in the end with its. dismissed as bedroom communities monocultures social flashpoints it's a failed model an example of what not to do. on talk that was funded crna tower is not a problem rather it's a question of how it's integrated into the surrounding area the state needs to help
and ensure that everyone has access to this kind of housing. through all this time measure we're told that money doesn't grow on trees and certainly not on the white tree in mom pay. with prices per square meter at $5000.00 euros it's something only a select few can afford. and be streaming is that i quote the activity of listening to or watching sound all video directly from the internet sounds innocent enough doesn't it however every time you use a streaming device it's building up a picture of your case a new using that data to dictate what will be directed at you in the future are streaming services beginning to control our lives i'll be discussing this with my colleague melissa holroyd after this. streaming service is with us constantly from sports to the office even to our relationships. services
like you chub all spotify are available for free. we play with our privacy to find out what happens with our data we tried to contact sport of 5 to 6 weeks without success a swedish research team wasn't able to talk to the company either their book the spotify teardown investigates the inner workings of the company one of its main topics is spotify and start a broker one that has little to do with music. diesel with its 14000000 users is one of the small streaming fish and one of the few prepared to talk to us. we asked what they do with information gleaned from uses. in. the subscription model where the user pays data to determine trends for example what are the trend differences from south to north from west to east and of
course across borders. in british sociologist new book the costs of connection this data vacation of society is described as part of a new type of colonialism. it's amazing that there is a parallel between the terms of every app now requires of us to basically take all our day to day to even didn't know we were generating and use it for purposes. and time 500 years ago when a major world power the spanish king was trying to grab a new type of resource which would go in latin america. as the new. streaming service is trying to make us customers feel like king while at the same time extracting the very last of our resources ourselves. we are king and colonised at the same time and of course money is being made then as now by
someone else. all right is with me now data is the new gold pretty scary stuff to me sure does and the stakes probably couldn't be higher nor the players bigger than we think of some of the biggest tech companies in the world some of the wealthiest companies in the world we think google microsoft amazon and all of these people all of these work with algorithms they all were. big data according to nicole tree who who co-wrote the costs of connection he says that this may well just be the beginning of big data collection that we're that we're seeing he's a sociologist who's been getting a lot of attention recently he focuses on big data and its effects on society but you also calls it a kind of colonialism i mean that's a bit much. colonialism but not in terms of the physical violence that took place
he makes a very good argument about colonialism empire building and extraction that they are the same as what's going on today so he says that every time we click on terms and conditions when we want to watch a film when we want to listen to some music we're agreeing to something that we don't really understand. as other parallels as well including the an extreme concentration of wealth and power companies that have access to big data also enjoy huge amount of power and they also use this civilizing rhetoric we're always hearing about the benefits of connection because of connection i really ask the simple question what's going on with this new land grab and what does it mean in terms of society but what we this is you know we all hear about data protection i mean in place the i mean there's plenty of data protection for us now on all your
data ownership and access some privacy they're all hot topics at the moment and many countries have been looking at the laws surrounding surrounding dodger protection we here in europe enjoy the general data protection regulation and we do have more protections than they do in than they than they do in other parts of the world africa has less protections and it's there that is a real hot spot for tech companies at the moment and it seems that the big conglomerates doing whatever they want really one of the big problems is that people think it's normal don't they people think that this is the. cost of services this is the cost of being part of a society and they're not questioning it especially young people who grew up in the internet generation. you know this is this is all very normal for them yeah melissa thank you very much i have no doubt we will be revisiting this subject a lot in the future. this city brother and is generally considered the world capital of techno the music itself maybe has its roots in detroit in the us but we
have the best techno clubs in the world by far right is the target of a book by photographer mark enabler who's been documenting the techno scene here in berlin since it all took off after the fold of the berlin wall in the 1990 s. . martine able to chronicle the spaces of berlin's wild new subculture in the 1990 s. . when it felt as if you were stumbling through a land of adventure into every day something changed. after the fall of the eastern for a living was full of empty lots and buildings abandoned industrial spaces were taken over by ravers out to dance to the new sound of freedom techno. in 1901 the club trees or opened in a one time department store it quickly became the flagship for the new party town and a launching pad for d.j.'s like paul van dyke. went in with his camera. taken
for math mount the 1st time i was in the trees or i had a black leather jacket on my head dyed black an oreo the guys there had white gloves and bright orange safety vests on and i thought wow this is a completely different world what's going on here that and you know. even then moved to berlin in the 1990 s. and dove right into the techno scene for about 10 years he focused on the spaces where the new art in music movements were happening. the resulting photo series is . temporary spaces these were the settings for a wild and lawless some culture of clubs bars and galleries. even the nails the hard way as he calls it he captures the brief moment before the party stuff that's.
what you generally associate with partying or you might call it club culture other people or what they do the dancing on the artificial fog and such but i was interested in the spaces it was all happening in. what the housing for this party or i should say this club thing actually looked like. this former underground club in a squat called imo is among the temporary spaces a villa has immortalized and kind of walking along here now and looking at the photos you can hardly believe the saying street so much about the city's expressive power has changed this to looking back on the photographer now see that extatic face during the ninety's and early 2000. and one of the title that that was a totally fabulous time for me seen from today it was a period of my life that was really good even if i feel very little connection to it now. the euphoria and the ecstasy of the beginning is over but in berlin
