Let’s Play, The art of the digital: This weekend during Amsterdam Museumnacht young artists and designers show their digital artworks in the subway stations Weesperplein, Waterlooplein and Central Station in Amsterdam. These stations form a digital art gallery with moving and soundless artworks. Information about the art works and artists is shown using Augmented Reality.
One of our CMD students Victor Zumpolle was selected to show his work “Blokje om”! His work will be shown at the Weesperplein subway station on 2 November from 7 p.m. to 3 p.m.There will be a prize-giving ceremony for the artworks at 1:00 AM. You can vote via the Let’s Play Art Gallery app.
This morning I visited the Philips seminar From data to meaning for people.
Talks on how machine to machine data can be important for people. How we can create meaning and value for consumers. Two highlights for me were: A very interesting talk on Quantified Self or self tracking by Maarten den Braber, Quantified self. And a fantastic example of visualizing data in combination with documentary making by Joris Maltha and Daniel Gross, Catalogtree.
