Concept

The great amount of information we currently dispose of on mankind, big and small data alike, allow us to track the outlines of our humanity like never before. However, this multitude of data blurs our identity which remains an unknown, a mystery that intensifies the more precise and complex its representation becomes.

Development

This exhibition, curated by Wild Mazzini and Marco Ruffino (lamatilde) and presented at Circolo del Design, revolves around the “broken figures” of the contemporary man and woman. Within this kaleidoscope, among iconography, data visualisation, photoviz, data art and sonification, the exhibition offers visitors the chance to contribute to the research of man on man through an interactive installation, analog and unfiltered, inviting us to find our own perspective.
