Artist’s statement

The DATA CENTERED COLLECTIVE presentation includes photographic mapping of the installation zone near the bleachers; sound files composed to evoke an acoustic refuge of transcontinental mechanic interactions and encounters; and graphic drawings and hand sketches of data centre components that will be used as colouring sheets for installation visitors to colour on, add to, trace, relax with, and learn from. In addition, the collective will be offering freshly baked cookies and will share recipes that articulate our tactic for approaching the data centre and digital software tracking techniques from an altogether different point of view.

DATA CENTERED COLLECTIVE’s work is included in REFUGE teams.
