April 12th – Back blogging and data visualisation

Thanks to Stephen Feber’s ping back, im back blogging, having left my regular ruminations and reflections dormant over the winter, and thats not because there have not been any, but to honour winter as space and time for hibernation of minds.

The North West is developing a global data visualisation project  for London 2012  and working with their new media department and a group of exciting regional and national partners – curators, artists, academics, coders etc – to develop something beautiful and useful. Emerging out of the telepresence workshop that I ran last october was an idea from Drew Hemment of Future Everthing for connecting the world globally and locally through data, open data, and some more data – this has subsequently moved forward into a commission to Future Everthing for the NW programme, supported by a R and D grant from the Arts Council and a partnership with London 2012. The work begins with concept development and  engaging partners  !
