Big Data

The Big Data comprises of four projects: Fabrika SplitSubjective Open DataPeople Chain and The Future Cloud is Buried.



Mission was to identify seams and boundaries in the Hybrid City, reflecting on the on the growing trends of Big Data, Quantified Self and the Internet of Things. To see where does this Big Data reside and who gets to see it, let alone make sense of it and use it? To find a place where data resides at the boundaries of the physical and the digital. What will the toolkits of these “data hunters” contain, and how will they explore the space between and beyond buildings as they seek to understand the urban environment through interaction rather than delineation.
