From Data to Art: The internet of Cultural things

Re-Blog from the British library

“Public engagement with data is a key aspect of the project. Through a series of site-specific installations at the BL, we want to transform public conception regarding cultural data by demonstrating the value of an Arts and Humanities approach for a better understanding of the role that data and information play in cultural institutions.

At this very initial stage of our project we are looking at various datasets held at the BL and are thinking on how to represent massive volume of information into a meaningful and interactive artistic expression able to translate to the general public the rich and diverse universe of information produced by the Library.”
