at the ISEA 2018 in Durban (South Africa) the data loam project was presented by Sophie-Carolin Wagner. in her artist talk she emphasized the topic of experimental data production and experimental data accumulation and the projects attempt to create access to a topography of knowledge by the structuring and organization of information in a new way. she also introduced the artistic research methods developed by our project partner RIAT, exemplified through two particular scenarios – »Proof-of-Burn« and »The forkshop«.
