EVERY THING EVERY TIME transforms urban data into poetry presented on a mesmerizing, large-scale mechanical screen. EVERY THING EVERY TIME will draw on data streams generated by the many events that happen each day in Austin. Passersby can watch as poetry is written in real time and revealed on a split-flap display. The artwork investigates concepts of the ‘smart city’, questioning notions of privacy, use and the role data has in our lives.
The work is part of the Future Art and Culture programme at SXSW, presented by British Underground and supported by Arts Council England. This presentation is also supported by British Council and features in their Anyone//Anywhere: the web at 30 season. EVERY THING EVERY TIME was first commissioned in Manchester (UK) as part of CityVerve – a project creating a blueprint for smarter cities worldwide.
