How can we extract quantitative data from the impact of a work of art?
This is the question put into play in the installation “Sand Falls”. It is an attempt to extract in an objective and aggregate way the impact of the presence of five groups of works of art on the visitors of an exhibition. Or seen another way, the influence of the different works on the visitors.
Each of the groups of works is equipped with a sensor that captures the time that the visitor remains before the work. This information is transferred analogically to each of the corresponding modules through the fall of a constant quantity of sand, a new reading of time that allows the impact of each group to be quantified over the course of a month.
Domestic Data Streamers is a team of developers that have taken on the challenge of transforming raw data into interactive systems and experiences.
A collaboration with Counterest and coproduced by CCCB and Fundació Telefónica
Produced for the exhibition Big Bang Data curated by José Luis de Vicente and Olga Subirós.
