Mark Selby talk Experiencing Data

 

Experiencing Data

Mark Selby, Centre for Design Informatics

Thursday 13th February 4pm T-Room, 1st Floor Evo House

We have always used technology to document and record the world and our experiences within it. Digital technologies now allow us to do this on an unprecedented scale, creating vast data sets that cover almost every aspect of human experience. But how can these dense and unwieldy archives be used in ways beyond the recall of facts, to provide us with much richer and potentially more human interactions with the past and present?

This talk will present some of my design work that investigates this question, and seeks to encourage reminiscence and reflection through engagement with digital data.

Mark Selby is a designer and researcher. He is currently a Research Fellow in Design Informatics, on the Learning Energy Systems project. He is also completing a PhD at Nottingham University’s Mixed Reality Lab and Horizon CDT. Alongside academic research he maintains an independent creative practice, regularly works with design studios and artists, and is a co-founder of the Institute for Boundary Interactions.
