Augmented Humanity – Contemporary identities between data and representation
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.
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.
The Oracle invites the visitor to answer its questions: by accepting, new data are actually produced, that turn the installation into a collective infographic.
The visual represents an organic mosaic in which, in the build-up of tiles, it is possible to see the features of one, no one, one hundred thousand, human faces.
