Topic: Data Collections and Conclusions in Public Art
Data is a cultural commodity which is annually increasing in value. Public art offers the chance to explore the nefarious and the virtuous aspects of data in a social setting. In this presentation we will discuss data collection through public art projects - the purpose, the challenges, the methods, and the conclusions.
Dan Sternof Beyer believes public curiosity is a measure of societal confidence. A sociologist with engineering problems, Dan draws from a varied background of fabrication, interactive marketing, and scientific exploration. Currently the Creative Director and co-founder of New American Public Art, he works to redefine modern notions of interactivity, infrastructure, and community engagement.
