Beneath and Beyond Big Data: Natalie Jeremijenko presentation

On April 28, 2012, the League presented Beneath and Beyond Big Data, a symposium–co-organized by Omar Khan, Trebor Scholz, and Mark Shepard–to celebrate the publication of the final issue in the Situated Technologies Pamphlets Series. The half-day event addressed current issues surrounding situated technologies and the increasing entanglement of data, technology, and the built environment, and identified future trajectories for their evolution.

In the second session of the day, Usman Haque, Natalie Jeremijenko, Laura Kurgan, and Mark Shepard presented a series of case studies on open data and the process of making data public, focusing on distributed sensing initiatives and contrasting them with centralized programs managed by government agencies.

Natalie Jeremijenko directs the xdesign Environmental Health Clinic at New York University. Previously she was on the Visual Arts faculty at UCSD and the Faculty of Engineering at Yale. Her project with The Living, “Amphibious Architecture,” was one of five commissioned for the Architectural League exhibition, Toward the Sentient City.
