Computing specialists, professional designers and researchers discuss their diverse methods of rendering abstract material into visual form. Data Poetry is held in conjunction with the exhibition, Incidental Data and presents a critique of data visualisation practices through contemporary work created by ‘old’ methods and tools. It will explore diverse analogue visual practices that reveal insights not afforded by algorithm-driven digital representations as well as encouraging debate and discussion of new, computer-driven processes. The seminar is preceded by an exhibition viewing and drinks.
Sydney Design events will be filmed by Powerhouse Museum staff and the content will be used by the Museum for promotion and this includes uploading into Powerhouse Museum accounts across a variety of third party platforms. If you do not wish to be filmed please inform the photographer/videographer at the time of the event.
