A visual exploration of the possibilities of bringing people, data and art closer together.

Data-West

Start virtual tour
Gaia van Egmond

At the invitation of Tante Netty, eight makers created new work based on self-collected data from the Woensel-West district. Collected from residents, entrepreneurs and authorities, translated into live performances, 3D installations, interactive animations, illustrations, a Radio show and carpets.

For residents, a neighborhood consists of shops, houses, plants and squares, but the higher you go up the policy ladder, the more such a neighborhood changes in numbers. With this project, Tante Netty and the 8 makers have given the data a face again.

Visualizing data began with scientists and other analysts, where graphs, maps and diagrams provided clear insight into increasingly complex amounts of figures. But data visualisations can also express emotions.

For the Data-West project, the chosen method of data collection and the form of the final work were left completely free. Where one maker took datasets as input for programming code, the other went door to door to meet the person behind the data.
