Enlarge Your Consciousness at JustMad, ARCO Madrid, on El Paìs

A wonderful article has appeared on the blog of El Paìs describing the Enlarge Your Consciousness in 4 Days 4 Free project.

Identities on sale: this is the main theme of the article, as suggested by the action through which we are trying to support the discussion on the new forms of privacy and publicness which are promoted by social network and, on a wider scope, by the whole of digitally interconnected humanity.

The sale of internet users profiles, which become your personal human tamagotchi, describes this situation.

Enlarge Your Consciousness is currently exhibited at JustMad, part of the ARCO Madrid art fair, with BTF Gallery, our companions in this project.

AOS will be coordinating the Sensible Data section of LPM: for this section the call is open to everyone who works with information visualization.

The Sensible Data section will feature a workshop which will introduce everyone involved to the beauty, power and possibilities offered by Information Visualization, and it will feature performances of designers, artists and visual performers which use informations (data sets, databases, open data, harvested data from the web, realtime captures from social networks, anything!) to power up their performance, creating narratives out of planetary issues, critical analysis of information, awareness on important matters and all those ways in which you can currently use data to convey stories about human beings, merging politics and poetics, and creating dramatic experiences.
