SPRING 2019 IDAH EVENTS

During the 2018-2019 academic year, the Institute for Digital Arts & Humanities will explore the theme: Marking the Arts and HumanitiesBy extending last year’s theme on making, we hope to interweave making with marking to create countless opportunities to critically engage the sources and processes that comprise a layered approach to the theories and praxes underlining the digital arts and humanities.

The Indiana University Libraries has a gold mine of digital collections that can be used for computational analysis. This workshop is focused on using archival finding aids from IU LIbraries' Archives Online. You will learn how to find information encoded in these documents, extract it automatically using XPath and XQuery, normalize your findings using Open Refine, and present it in an interactive timeline using Timeline JS. No prior experience is required.

Caroline Sinders is an artist and researcher exploring how new kinds of data sets, be it emotional data, traumatic data, or political data can then affect algorithms. How can these outputs be actualized as an art piece? Can the creation of a data set help create equity in digital spaces? Her work explores the intersections of critical design, data, and AI as art. This talk will explore the methodology she's created to guide both her art and research practice, called 'research driven art.'

Artist and researcher, Caroline Sinders, will lead a workshop with the Feminist Data Set project at the core. The workshop will investigate varying methods for creating a feminist data set. What is feminist data inside of social networks, algorithms, and big data? A feminist data set queers the archive, the spreadsheet, and the data set. It moves beyond a white and male space, forcing the technology to reflect the community. A feminist data set acts as a means to combat bias and introduce 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, the session asks: can data collection itself function as an artwork? How can we create data to be an act of protest against algorithms?
