Artistic Strategies for Engagement with Data Politics
NCAD, August 29&30 2019
is a research project bringing together artists and designers to explore the methodologies they are using in their research and practice to engage with complex sociotechnical systems (with a particular focus on algorithms, machine learning and their physical layer infrastructures). The aim is to share and formalise the methods that are developing in the space between art, digital research methods and practice-based research for interrogating these systems. This will form a document for creative practitioners and researchers who are engaging with algorithmic systems but might also constitute a documented set of practices that universities and research groups can point to and use to justify inclusion and greater funding for creative practitioners and practice-based research.
