MATTERN, Shannon; LUERSEN, Eduardo Harry. Auscultação urbana: ou percebendo a ação do coração. RUA, Campinas, SP, v. 26, n. 2, p. 385–409, 2020. DOI: 10.20396/rua.v26i2.8661453. Disponível em: Acesso em: 14 jun. 2024.


Frequentemente, as operações internas do corpo humano podem ser ouvidas e, há séculos, aqueles que curam têm se utilizado da auscultação – a prática de ouvir o corpo, normalmente com o auxílio de aparelhos e máquinas – para avaliar a saúde e diagnosticar doenças. As cidades também já se prestaram à análise sonora, tendo sido comparadas tanto a corpos como a máquinas. Este artigo examina como os métodos de escuta urbana, através de ouvidos humanos e mecânicos, têm informado sobre a cidade enquanto um corpo orgânico ou mecânico – e como os novos ouvidos da inteligência artificial têm pautado a cidade conforme a sua própria lógica computacional.
