‘Are We Data?’ questions the relationship between place and place-less ‘big data’. Using an immersive installation, we explore whether digital data can really reveal ‘who we are’.

AWED presents an encounter between two screens. One shows a collage of archival and contemporary footage of a housing estate in Milton Keynes. Netherfield was planned to accommodate an imagined people of the future. The second screen is a live ‘dashboard’ of data visualisations or representations of 'you', the audience. Your geography, your cultural engagement and presence in this gallery space are all represented.

Come and interact with us! By answering simple survey questions, tweeting and connecting to Wi-Fi you will become part of the installation. The gathered data will be anonymised and used to explore the changing methods of representing who we are.
