W1/2017: Creative Data: New Media Interdisciplinary Design
May 17 and 18, 11:00 AM – 01:00 PM, MRT0022 (University of Ottawa, 65 University Private)
This workshop will survey the theory and effects of quantifiable data on human activity, and will explore how an interdisciplinary design approach employing media with data processing can be a form of creative resilience. From new media visualization samples to common text applications, digital forms of data will be examined in open-source programs to offer an alternate means of producing insights through the creative design process. Attendees will participate in a workshop designed to critically examine the challenges and beauty of automated environments.
