the “artist” role
The BIG BANG DATA exhibition explores the information explosion phenomenon we are currently experiencing. The quantity of data and their use are changing the way our society works in a fundamental fashion, something that is taking place both with our awareness and without it, voluntarily and involuntarily. We all generate data (our mobile phones, social networks, bank transfers, GPS signal) but what’s new is that it is increasingly easy to store and process vast quantities of information from which it is possible to deduce certain patterns of behaviour, consumption, choice, etc. Are the limits of our personal freedom thus changing?
