Wild Mazzini . data art gallery
Via Mazzini 33, Torino - Italy
The collective exhibition is curated by the DensityDesign Lab of the Politecnico di Milano and Wild Mazzini for the season Substance changes.
Through the languages of video and digital, thirteen projects created by as many students explore in a total of 15 minutes social, environmental and technological issues, bringing to light aspects of reality otherwise hidden in the complexity of phenomena and in the vast amount of data they produce.
Result of the work developed by Paolo Ciuccarelli and Salvatore Zingale, these projects are born as exercises of Infopoetry, between 2015 and 2018, with the aim of mixing the techniques of information design with a poetic approach to the representation of reality.
The exhibition, which hosts the works of Giulia Piccoli Trapletti, Francesco Bianchi, Marta Mandile, Chiara Bonsignore, Yue Qiu, Valeria Brienza, Sofia Girelli, Francesco Giudice, Giovanni Battista Pesarini, Marta Morandi, Pietro Cedone and Claudio Fabbro, offers the viewer an investigation into contemporary events through the transformation of structured and unstructured data into engaging experiences.
DensityDesign is a Research Laboratory of the Design Department of the Politecnico di Milano, focusing on the visual representation of complex social, organizational and urban phenomena.
The research objective is to exploit the potential of information visualization and information design and provide innovative and engaging visual artifacts to allow researchers to build solid arguments.
By organising numerical data, reinterpreting qualitative information, locating information geographically and constructing visual taxonomies, it is possible to develop a diagrammatic visualization, a graphic “shortcut” to describe and reveal the hidden connections of complex systems. The visualizations are open, inclusive and preserve multiple interpretations of complex phenomena.
DensityDesign is committed to working with other researchers and organizations dedicated to independence and academic rigor, open investigation and risk-taking to improve our understanding of the world.
