DCS | Digital Culture and Society | Vol. 3, Issue 1 | © transcript 2017 DOI 10.14361/dcs-2017-0109 Urban Hacking and Its “Media Origins” Angela Krewani Abstract This essay traces the genealogy of urban and mobile media hacking. It is argued that the forerunners of urban hacking were artists active within the Fluxus scene and Viennes Actionism.

While at the first glance, the characteristics of rural and urban areas appear to be clear-cut and mutually exclusive, further empirical probing calls into question this black-and-white, woodcut-like representation. This essay is a musing on experiences of navigating the fringes of the city of Yogya- karta on Java on a motor scooter during a 10 month period of residency in

Urban Metabolism Sabine Barles Urban-environmental history concerns inter alia the many and varied interactions between societies and the biosphere. The most concrete part of these interactions consists of exchanges of energy and materials: what some scholars call ‘urban me- tabolism’. Societies and cities in particular are major consumers of materials and energy, either directly within their territory, or indirectly via the materials, goods and services that they import or export. Thence, the urban metabolism has both upstream and downstream consequences in
