The Art and Beauty of Data
Join Brendan Dawes as he shows how he tries to find the poetry within data to create data-born work for people rather than geeks. From large scale real-time interactive work, to electronic curiosities to data you can hold and touch, Brendan will take you behind the scenes of what went into the work, including the things that went well and more interestingly the things that sometimes went wrong. He may even have some giveaways too!
