Data Art as Time Capsule of the Anthropocene
If we put the time that human exists onto a clock, we are only the last two seconds. Can we stop climate change if we get out of the regular perception of time, compress and defamiliarize time? Data is the footprint of climate change over time. Not another impersonal, boring, and clinical chart on climate data! Our panel will explore how data tell stories about climate change by observing their various ways of looking at the time through data art and how we can turn the esoteric numbers into embodied experiences and foster connections. Panels will share their insights on deep time, data humanism, handbuilt data art with recycled materials, data feminism, and calculation of carbon footprint for their artworks. Our panelists are artists and designers deeply connected to data and ecology.
