In today’s techno-utopia, technology and data often feel beyond our understanding – the devices we hold in our hands everyday might as well be a piece of wizardry. In (S)NO(W) need for DATA? We aim to get out of the incomprehensible world of data and turn into something meaningful. Using snow data collected from around the world, we will apply both digital and non-digital approaches – think tiktok length and ski goggles.
You will work on making a digital visual/audio work, costumes/props and creating some spoken word which will be squished together like making a snowball to make your end performance. During the performances we will unwind with snowball drinks and snacks. (Ski attire optional)
What to expect: The workshop is about imaginative ways of interpreting data (snow could be a surrogate for other data – but it’s nearly Christmas!), which we’ll do through making hands-on cardboard objects, using free and accessible data visualisation software and creative writing. No prior knowledge of data (or making things out of cardboard) is required. All welcome.
