The Performance Of Infosthetics
Stanza's project experiences the city through sensors and data.
The two topics that always seem to come up on PSFK: data visualization and real time performances/events. Both are symptomatic of a digital infiltration of our world. In an age where everything can be quantified, obviously, the way the data is qualified affects many decisions. At same time, this anything-anywhere-all the time mentality puts the cultural focus on the experiential and public space. This where Stanza's art projects take off.
Showing at the V&A's Decode exhibition in London, Stanza‘s Sensity marries real time data with speculations about the local environment. We Make Money Not Art has a full story and interview with the artist.
