Event Details

All Welcome and free!

Join us for an evening of design, data and wine with an

introductory talk by Brendan Dawes in the Cantor building lecture theatre

E.E. Cummings once described the falling of snow as “carefully everywhere descending”. To designer Brendan Dawes, data acts in the same way, falling around us every second of the day, waiting to be scooped-up, held in our hands and used to create something new. In this new exhibition Brendan shows how he uses data as a clay-like mouldable source material; from machines that print-out happy feelings to iPhone apps designed to capture the now, to graphic images that interpret millions of pieces of data. Dot Dot Dot explores a designers response to the ubiquitous data and networks that pervade our everyday lives.
