What are the feminist data sets inside of social networks, algorithms, and big data? How can we queer data, archives, and the internet? How can a data set act as a form of protest, of a creation of bias mitigation? This class looks at ways of intervention, from art, design, and technology, that combat and challenge bias. How can we create data to be an act of protest against algorithms?
This workshop focuses on Alumni Technology Resident Caroline Sinders’s research and current art project, Feminist Data Set. Feminist Data Set acts as a means to combat bias and introduces the possibility of data collection as a feminist practice, aiming to produce a slice of data to intervene in larger civic and private networks. Exploring its potential to disrupt larger systems by generating new forms of agency, Sinders will ask participants: can data collection itself function as an artwork?Buy tickets/get more info now
