Invisible data performance
Saturday 19 November | 14:00 –16:30
Explore the reactions of your body and your mind to two pervasive and invisible datasets – smell and GPS. This participatory workshop draws from historical research on digital subjectivity and identity as well as performative ideas about the body and lived experience. Through recording and communicating two datasets we invite you to question the political and social ramifications of how data visualisations are designed, challenging conventional connections between technology and society. The event is led by Dr Shehnaz Suterwalla, design historian at the Royal College of Art; Kate McLean, a multidisciplinary artist working in visual and olfactory communication, and Christopher Wood, an artist and researcher interested in the ability of technology to mediate and create space in urban environments.
