Symposium:



Title:

  • Art and Innovation in the Age of Big Data: Design of Info-Objects and Interfaces for Data Visualization

Organiser/Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • This workshop focuses on Data and Representation, following a step-by-a-step approach to identify significant patterns in datasets and to explore innovative methods to make insights visible and tangible. Although our methodology can be applied to multiple materials, “water” will be the central theme for this edition.

    The duration of the workshop is four hours, split in two days. On day one, participants reflect and discuss different ways in which hydrologic data can be represented using physical materials. On day two, participants (individually or collectively) show the results. We expect the experience to be joyful and thought-provoking.


Sponsorship/Support:

  • This workshop is the result of an international Art, Science and Technology cooperation Program “INNOVART” between three universities: Université Paris 8 Vincennes-Saint-Denis, National University of La Plata, and National University of Buenos Aires with the support of PIESCI of the Ministry of Education in Argentina and IFA from the Embassy of France.
