Based on a geographical, socio-economic and botanical case study, this work in progress already includes over 23 video-interviews realized between 2003 and 2005 with "cast-members" related to the above mentioned urban settings. Architects, affected neighbours, inmigrant workers, artists, politicians and activists were asked about how they related to these places. Developed as an offline application the aesthetics of explore BCNova! is based on a reflection about the interface as a "cultural interface" playing with programme metaphors and the concept of user interactivity whilst offering a ready-made scenario.
