Data Through Design is pleased to announce the opening of Ground Truth IRL, a public exhibition of 12 data-driven, interdisciplinary art projects open March 5th through 13th. We invite you to  join us for the opening reception on Friday, March 4th at 9 Hall Street in Brooklyn starting at 6:30 pm. Please RSVP here.

Data Through Design is a yearly data art exhibition featuring works that creatively analyze, interpret and interrogate data made available in NYC’s Open Data Portal. The theme for this year is Ground Truth: the insight we receive from being ”on the ground,” collecting or confirming data through direct observation, as opposed to abstract estimates, samples, or reports derived from remote locations. As our large-scale social and environmental upheaval continues, we invite artists to step out into their world to examine the relationship between lived experience and the overlay of data and mediated information used to interpret such experience. These works investigate data’s relationship to physical place and personal experience.
