Entering the Space of Big Data

Joanna Sleigh

Contributing to the enquiry of data transmission Joanna Sleigh (Australia) enters the dynamic space of ‘Big Data’, which she describes as a communally produced layer of digital documentation that when analyzed and categorized often elicits a sense of ‘overwhelmingness’. Her paper focuses on the experience of accessing this data both as producer and analyst. She has approached this topic through participation in a trans-disciplinary workshop where artists, researchers, designers, architects, philosophers, engineers, physicists, and other thinkers from across the world gathered in the context of the our current era’s unprecedented hyper-connection and data mining capabilities. Her research follows the groups projects to produce wearable technologies and a collaborative online platform, that represent the groups collaborative findings on the human reaction to the complicit and interconnected world of big-data.
