//Data Visualisations are new knowledge practices that aim to make complex information accessible through visual means and, discover new patterns and meanings in life.
//Whilst the data boom of recent years has brought huge amounts of unprocessed data, simultaneously more and more creative tools have emerged that make access to and working with digital data simpler.
//Bridging the arts, sciences and design, data visualisation has become one of the most prominent creative practices. With its origin in info-graphics and scientific visual analysis, this emerging crossdisciplinary territory presents us with new potentials that need to be tackled.
//Our aspiration is to accentuate the future facets of this rapidly evolving practice by bringing together creative communities and sharing inspiring ideas, new findings, critical theories and contemporary practices.
//Events and activities will create a diverse platform of knowledge exchange for artists, scientists and designer including symposiums, an exhibition, workshops, hacking events, demo talks and a concert.
