This exhibition seeks to explore the human experience in a world of data. Building on the field of data visualisation and embodiment, we are moving into multisensory and physical ways of making sense of digital information.

About

Dr. Simone Gumtau, who conceived the overall exhibition concept, is designing a screen based data visualisation, which will in future feed into a functioning interface implemented on marine vessels. This is part of a project led by Professor David Brown and Dr. Edward Smart using sensor data to predict catastrophic engine failures.

The same data and process is then interpreted and applied by London based textile artist Cassi Hill, responding to a set of instructions that maps the data into a 3D textile sculpture; and in the same way, experimental sound and interactive artist Simon Kunath is creating a vibrotactile display that allows the visitor to literally sense the data.
