Archival research project about data collection and visualisation by students from the MFA Curating and the MFA Computational Arts departments.
568 rows 18 columns is a project that investigates how an archive informs the identity of a cultural institution while exploring the possibilities and limits of visual data representations such as graphs and maps.
The event marks the end of Out of Data Research Group’s six-month archival research inquiry at Cubitt. The research group – comprised of Goldsmiths MFA Curating students Johanna Hardt, Ashley Janke and Katie Yook – has brought about the datafication and digitization of information from Cubitt’s Archive. The research has been driven by their interest in challenging the apparent face value of data as a medium of knowledge transfer by exploring more fluid and dynamic modes of visual representation.
1. Workshop: Methods of Data Analysis in Creative Fields 3-4.30pm
Data analysis has accelerated rapidly during the past five years and is being applied to new areas such as the visual arts. In this workshop, computational artist Jayson Haebich will discuss new ways of thinking about data and information. This will include the use of data analysis and machine learning within the creative fields, how it can be used and what technologies are currently available. Jayson will introduce some easy use tools that participants can apply to their own data.
**Places for the workshop are limited, Please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Website Launch and drinks reception 4.30-6.30pm
Presentation of 568 rows 18 columns, a new work by Jayson Haebich that uses programming and data visualisation to translate Out of Data Research Group’s database of information collected from Cubitt’s archive, which dates back to 1991. Visitors are invited to interact with the works and engage with the reading materials provided.
