How do we navigate the landscapes of data?
Terra Recognita: The cartography of latitude and longitude is largely unvisited by any one person. The territory of what we know and recognize leads to a topography of self-portraiture. Steve Dietz will discuss several projects - Marek Walczak and Martin Wattenberg's ‘Apartment’, Julie Mehretu and Entropy8zuper!'s ‘Minneapolis and St. Paul Are East African Cities’, and ‘PDPal’ by Marina Zurkow, Scott Paterson, and Julian Bleecker - that use what might be called "data sedimentation" to build layer by idiosyncratic layer an alternate "communicity" of collected urban experiences.
