“Culture is Data” is an exploratory project, focused on Open Data and Data Viz. The idea here was to show what is possible to achieve when you take a big load of interesting data and put it through automated visualization methods & technologies like Data Viz and creative coding.

This video, and the poster available for download at en.userstudio.fr/projects/culture-is-data, show the 2012 Open Data provided by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication (available at: data.gouv.fr).

As data entry depends on the good will of French cities, "Départements" and "Régions" officials, it is not a systematic process. Consequently, please note that this video does not necessarily reflect the real amount and nature of French cultural events throughout the year.
