Witness Data

Selected for Exhibition

Witness Data is eligible for Data Canvas exhibitions that will be curated both online and offline.


Project Description

Sense Your City acknowledges the fact that cities are more what we are seeing, observing and experiencing through our every day life. The focus is on the microclimate of the city and the invisible agents that make up the air quality, humidity, temperature, dust, light intensity etc.

The sensors distributed in various cities and places of the world by the Data Canvas: Sense the City initiative, assist in revealing those agents to the public to stir awareness and engagement.

Witness Data utilises the data retrieved from the sensors, and uses design as means to convey this information to the public.

The creators envision a city were data will be open to the public to inform it and stir initiatives. As our project tries to illustrate data are there to inform both citizens and cities. The way we make our built environment, the orientation of our buildings, their geometry, the materials we use, the percentage of green areas and their distribution, as well as our own behaviour and habits can be questioned, informed and altered by capturing data.
