Jeff Donaldson takes us into his obsession with the glitch world - creating knits and woven fabrics generated by game consoles, websites, data backups, and viruses to create physical, and wearable items!

Jeff  is an artist and designer based in Maryland. In 2001 Donaldson began preparing video hardware to intentionally short-circuit. This practice is the foundation for his textile and surface design practice.

Tell Stories Not Data

@ VOL 11 ON SEP 29, 2016

In the 1840s Ignaz Semmelweis hit upon the idea of doctors washing their hands before they entered a maternity ward. The resulting fall in the death rate should have sealed his place in history as a pioneer of the scientific method but his inability to weave an emotional story around the data led to his idea being rejected. Countless women died needlessly purely because the doctors prejudices triumphed over the data.

Und was sind weitere Fragen, die zukünftig auf uns zukommen werden?

Data By Design Table Talks: Powered by PechaKucha

  For years the term “Big Data” has buzzed on the lips of CEOs and executives and bounced off board room walls. Companies understand the opportunity their data represents to customize products and services to their customers, streamline operational efficiency, and unearth market insights that provide a competitive advantage. But knowing how best to apply data is one thing—telling a story through data in a way that illuminates is an art unto itself. CNN Money recently published an insightful piece on this subject. Author Olof Schybergson says, “It’s about turning information into meaningful insights people can use, giving data a human shape and a connection with the messy real world that we live in… Designers have it ingrained to focus on simplicity and bring a singular focus to delighting the end user—regardless of whether they are a business user or consumer. Designers know how to take complex or disparate information and make it tangible, understandable, and importantly, more human.” We’ll be tackling this with the experts for our May Table Talks: Data by Design. Joining us for lunch on Thursday, May 23 will be Datascope Analytics partner Aaron Wolf, designer Sharlene King, DataMade founder Derek Eder, Chicago Data Visualization Meetup organizer Josh Doyle, and Table XI COO Mark Rickmeier, each of whom will treat us to a PechaKucha-style presentation on the topic.

Mata is Meta-Data: Mapping the Anthropolithic Age

"Its an ancient god, being awakened, being uploaded, being digitized...along with all the other worldly mythologies." In Mata is Meta-Data: Mapping the Anthropolithic Age from Honolulu Vol. 23 artist Solomon Enos, known for his "Epic Tales of Hi`iakaikapoliopele" interpreted as large scale murals and installations, passionately shares his most recent project, “Polyfantastica”, where evil corporations are personified as grotesque monsters in tales of battles of good over evil. The work is a continuation of his life-long project called “Mata” in which he hopes may unify all the global mythologies and theologies into the final human narrative, hosted as an international public game for children. This is some next level imagination!

Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design

"We applied that algorithm [extracted from xylem cell exoskeletons] to design objects at a different scale." From Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design at Brooklyn Vol. 4, David Benjamin, Principal at The Living, a design firm that brings architecture and design to life, expounds upon some of the amazing projects his firm uses to combine natural, biological intelligence and artificial intelligence to find new solutions to old problems. Whether it’s using living mussels and sensors to understand changes in water quality, or growing biodegradable bricks using the root-like structures of mushrooms and agricultural waste, and then building a structure using 10 thousand of these, the projects in action are a small window into our future.
