MAKING SENSE OF DATA
- understanding digital reality through contemporary artistic practices of sonification and visualization
MAKING SENSE OF DATA is a research project funded by The Danish Council for Independent Research (DFF-4001-00120), joint with the Department of Communication & Culture Aarhus University.
The project investigates how we interact with each other and perceive our world through images, texts and sounds that are increasingly being created and mediated by digital technologies and data formats.
A key focus is the complex data processes and infrastructures that constitute our composite analogue/digital life-world. The project's approach is highly interdisciplinary and involves critical reflections on contemporary artistic and experimental design practices, as well as current computational research fields.
The project is lead by Thomas Bjørnsten, PhD.
