Data Through Design (DxD): Ground Truth IRL

March 6 2022 at 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 12:00 pm, repeating until March 13 2022

Data Through Design is pleased to announce the opening of Ground Truth IRL, a public exhibition of 12 data-driven, interdisciplinary art projects open March 5th through March 13. We invite you to visit the gallery any day between Saturday, March 5 at 9 Hall Street in Brooklyn between 12 PM and 7 PM.

Data Through Design is a yearly data art exhibition featuring works that creatively analyze, interpret and interrogate data made available on NYC Open Data. The theme for this year is Ground Truth: the insight we receive from being ”on the ground,” collecting or confirming data through direct observation, as opposed to abstract estimates, samples, or reports derived from remote locations. As our large-scale social and environmental upheaval continues, we invite artists to step out into their world to examine the relationship between lived experience and the overlay of data and mediated information used to interpret such experience. These works investigate data’s relationship to physical place and personal experience.

This year we bring together 6 projects from the 2021 virtual Ground Truth exhibition and 6 new projects for an in-person exhibition in Brooklyn. 

Exhibiting artists and projects:

  • Alec Barrett, Every Row is a Garden
  • Julia Bloom, Sukanya Aneja, and Michael Hsu, Compositions: NYC
