Imaging [urban] data visualizationEvent
The goal of this meeting in collaboration with [urban interfaces] is to facilitate a dialogue between academics and practitioners about the possibilities for innovative, critical and experimental forms of “bringing back” data to (urban) publics. Or, in other words, we will discuss how creative and critical data visualizations allow urban publics to become aware of, and engage with, issues of public, shared concern, and to subsequently act upon them.
This is an urgent topic as our society is becoming increasingly datafied and our urban spaces are increasingly infused with (smart) media technologies. The event brings together a diverse group of practitioners and researchers who, in various ways, work with data visualization. Invited artists and researchers will present their work on datavisualization and focus on intersections of artistic and/or other ambitions. Questions that will be addressed include:
How does the (selected) medium communicate the data in (artistic) data visualization?
How is “factuality” and “fictionality”, or imagination, negotiated in (artistic) data visualization?
How can new, artistic and creative visualization play a role in reshaping our conceptualizations of the urban?
How does situation and context (i.e. urban, public spaces) influence the way visualizations work?
What is the relationship between data visualizations and changing forms of urban publicness?
Explore strategic partnerships for collaborative research and artistic funding proposals.
Explore agenda setting for research, artistic practice and cultural events.
