Happiness lies somewhere at the end of a bell curve…

This is a presentation/demo of instruments, analytical tools and art works that have emerged through a series of ‘Operating Systems’ (op-sy.com) that have been cultivated at i-DAT (www.i-dat.org) over the last decade to explore techniques for harvesting and analysing data from a variety of contexts. They employ a range of digital processes coupled with ethnographic practices that can be described as a “techno-ethnography’.

Like a matryoshka doll, these Operating Systems recursively collapse in on themselves. Somewhere the body sits (a body that is neither ill or super fit, simultaneously an individual and a crowd) located in a physical architecture (software for buildings) framed by a Social network (where happiness lies somewhere at the end of a bell curve and true love can be found in a slice of pie chart) and all sitting snugly within a complex ecology (harvested environmental data to bring the landscape a little closer). Some of these things also find their way into Fulldome spaces…
