We will be in Bruxelles on June 14th for this incredible conference organized by, Information Aesthetics and Open Knowledge Foundation to discuss the potential and scenarios currently represented by Information Visualization for policy makers and civil society, business, health, science. For a better, more efficient, sustainable society, and to promote new forms of active citizenship and new visions for society.

We (Art is Open Source and FakePress Publishing) will discuss possibilities that deal with representing information at large scale (such as in architectures) and in really small ones (such as in the pockets of people), to create entirely new scenarios that will produce effects across disciplines and areas of operativity.

Here below the complete info package.
