I’m pleased to be presenting my work as part of an upcoming workshop by Julien Prévieux at Julius Caesar this week. Titled Statactivism (after Prévieux’s book by the same name) the workshop will focus on the role of statistics in everyday life (both within and outside of software):
Statistics seem cold—inhumane measurements of the way in which we move about the world, tracking our patterns, needs, and daily interactions. Power is given to those who accumulate and analyze these numbers, and the concern of these quantified evaluations is shared by us all despite our position, career, or involvement with government. Julien Prévieux’s workshop will present research from his book Statactivism and its relationship to movement measurement which forms the basis of his upcoming exhibition at Julius Caesar.
This workshop is part of the events surrounding Julien’s upcoming solo exhibition at Julius Caesar. I had the good fortune of seeing this work at Centre Pompidou in Paris last year and highly recommend it! The workshop is space-limited, so please let me know if you’re interested in attending.
