Take part in a data walkshop with Data activist Dr Alison Powell. – a research process for producing radical data through collaborative walks.
Places are very limited. Please BOOK HERE.
Data walking creates a process for observing, reflecting on and seeking to intervene in how data influences civic space. By playing roles as photographers, note-takers and map-makers, participants develop ways to think about and reflect on what data might be, and what role it plays in key social issues.
This walkshop offers participants the opportunity to explore and discuss the data surveillance processes at play in the vicinity of the Royal Geographical Society, and their effects on trade and exchange. We will be working through a process of rapid group ethnography that Alison has developed with the Museum of Contemporary Commodities and other projects to investigate data mediations and their effects. Find out more here.
The Museum of Contemporary Commodities will be installed in the Pavilion Gallery at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) open to the public 10:00-16:00pm 24th-27th August 2017.
