Social Hacking extends ideas of hacking beyond the computer to the communicative structures of people, social interactions and the use of public spaces. Projects modify popular technologies for creative experimentation and question the distinction between digital space and real public space in the city, “hacking” the usual expectations of what public art might look, sound and feel like.
