Gateway to the World : Data Visualisation Poetics-Bremen

Mencia, Maria [Artist] and Auberson, Pascal [Programmer] (2016) Gateway to the World : Data Visualisation Poetics-Bremen. Shapeshifting Texts : Rhizomatic Surfaces. .


GttW is an exploration of data visualisation poetics by using open data from the maritime database (…). As the vessels move they act as writing tools to reveal a string of text creating calligramatic forms of information pulled from Wikipedia entries about the name of the vessels. The information gathered from these entries generates a remix of text going from presenting factual information about vessels (containers, cargo ships, tankers, high speed crafts) to describing their names connecting them to characters in literary works, plays and mythological stories. The present version was created for the Exhibition Shapeshifting Texts, which took place in Bremen.
