Metroscope comprises five circular digital displays that constantly change. They represent Liverpool and each of its twin cities: Odessa, Dublin, Shanghai and Koln. Each display automatically hunts the internet twenty four hours a day using the search phrase 'Liverpool is..' 'Shanghai is..' etc. displaying what it finds. "Barometers for current thinking about our great cities, they capture the ebb and flow of information without human intervention." Warp Factor 5, Captain, and set the phasers to stun!
