We live in an age of information overload. It is everywhere and typically represented through data visualisation systems that aren’t clear enough for us to understand or emotional enough for us to empathise with. Eventually, this generalised misinformation has translated to a global lack of action.
The 730 hours of violence exhibition is an open lab of museographic experimentation and at the same time a thermometer to measure the opinion and perception of the public. A month-long exercise in citizen interaction that expands the discourse of the physical space through the possibilities offered by digital platforms.
We want to open a global discussion to examine where exactly our definition of violence is rooted, and thus, open questions about the information sources that condemn or legitimate our daily lives.
Note: The artwork addresses difficult subjects and includes language that people may find offensive.
Domestic Data Streamers is a multidisciplinary team that combines design, art, technology and data to create participatory projects that build community and generate empathy. Our aim is to change the ways people relate to information in these crazy times we live in, because the world can’t be understood without numbers, but it won’t be understood with numbers alone.
