This Thursday, September 18, near Newcastle, England, Baltic, the Centre for Contemporary Art, will host a seminar on data-based art. The first talk of the day will feature independent curator and event chair Sarah Cook introducing how visual artists use technologies to respond and deal with environments of information overload. Over the next few hours, attendees will dive into the following -- UCSD Professor Lev Manovich querying the database as a form; Mongrel-member Graham Harwood on how to share data to make it socially relevant, and German cyberfeminist artist Cornelia Sollfrank downloading on her persistent use of random-generators in her art practice. Other participants and three free performances (two sound, one cinematic) round out what should be a full day. Reserve your place online. -- Rachel Greene
