We now have a diverse group of twenty students, from 12 different RCA courses, from all six schools, signed up for Seeing Things (28 October – 1 November). The programme we posted earlier in the summer has changed a bit (see below) though the overall pattern of the week is similar.
Our challenge over the week builds on the ‘energy visualisation’ aspects of SusLab to explore visualising, or making experiential in new ways, a broad range of hidden patterns in everyday life, relating to either human behaviours or environmental conditions. The interests, expertise and perspectives of students from many different backgrounds and creative disciplines will, we hope, enable a really interesting set of outcomes.
We’re also delighted to welcome four wonderful guests, who are all doing intriguing things with visualising, translating or making tangible different kinds of data and patterns:
- Dave Cranmer, Nervous Squirrel: http://nervoussquirrel.com
- Dagny Rewera, BornAnIdea: http://www.bornanidea.com
- Matthew Venn, Cursive Data, http://www.mattvenn.net Â / http://cursivedata.co.uk
- Fiddian Warman, Soda / Londonscape, http://londonscape.org / http://soda.co.uk
On Friday 1st November, from 4-7pm, the students will be showing the results of the week’s project, at a reception in the Senior Common Room of the RCA, to a range of external visitors – if you’d be interested in coming along, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
