Information Kinetics: EGOVIZ

Posted: July 13th, 2009 | Author: Manuel Lima | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

I will be in mid-august in San Sebastian (Spain) for a workshop, part of the EGOVIZ event. Spread over the course of 2 weeks, EGOVIZ will be directed by Bestiario and include participants √Āngela Zoss, Fabien Girardin, Marcos Weskamp and myself. The Call for Projects has recently been extended, so feel free to submit yours.

The objective of this workshop is to connect scientific vision with artistic expression via the visualisation of data. In present-day society we live with an overabundance of information. However, obtaining meaningful analysis or relevant reflection can be an especially hard task. Organising information, offering different perspectives, encouraging analysis or bringing that which seemed hidden to light, with the aim of catalysing meaningful reflection are tasks often faced by the artist, at times in the guise of a private investigator and at others armed only with intuition. It seems appropriate, therefore, to provide conceptual and technical tools that enable the artist to tackle their investigations from other perspectives.
