Birmingham City Council is Europe's largest municipal authority. In 2011 they commissioned a project to visualize the data coming out of their call centres: what, and where, the public were contacting them about, and when they were doing it. The result was http://civicdashboard.org.uk/, which we built together with the digital design agency Mudlark, in a short space of time, and on a very tight budget. This session will cover: * Working with highly structured data whose schema regularly changes * Importing data exported from SAP * Prototyping data exploration * Deeply nested data structures in MongoDB * Hosting an app like this on Heroku * Performance More info: http://berlinbuzzwords.de/sessions/visualising-public-service-seeing-inside-birmingham-city-councils-interactions-public+ More details

Why don't you surprise me? If I just stand here and close my eyes, waiting with excitement, listening for your sounds as you get ready and then, millimetre by millimetre, I open my eyes and look at you as you do something for me. Something surprising; very surprising.+ More details

24 pairs of eyes. 24 girls that lived on the streets. 24 stories to be told. Video as part of the performance "FEAR vs LOVE vs FEAR" by VestAndPage, in occasion of "Proyecto Liquido" by Alumnos47 Foundation, Mexico City, June 2012. Eyes and voices have been registered of 24 girls that lived on the streets of Mexico City, during the intensive workshop held by VestAndPage at YOLIA organization. The girls are speaking about their fears and desires. To read more about the workshop project with street-kids FEAR IS FEAR. LOVE IS LOVE, please visit the Blog: fearisfear.wordpress.com/ "I’m afraid of myself. I’m afraid of not controlling myself, because sometimes I’m pretty angry. This control is not so much about containing myself, but about not hurting the persons I love. I’m also afraid of closed spaces, and of spaces filled with people. I once knew a girl named Gloria, just as my mother, and I always went to her house, or she came to mine. It was not more than three months that we knew each other, that my friend suddenly died, because she was hit by a car, by a taxi. I miss her a lot. I’m afraid of fighting with my sister. I’m also afraid of the bathroom at night, as there are sounds just like in a horror-movie. There are also shadows and strange sounds that frighten me. I’m also afraid of not being able to talk to a kid that I actually like. I’d wish that my sister wouldn’t get sick, that my mother would be fine, that my father wouldn’t get angry, that my aunt would love me, that my grandfather would be with me, that my grandmothers Ana and Janet would be with me, as well as my uncle Toño. I’m afraid of myself, because sometimes my own reactions frighten me. I’m also very afraid of wars, and of the hate in the world. I’m afraid of darkness and to be alone in unknown places. I’m afraid of water. I’m afraid of getting to know new persons. I’m very afraid, less than of death itself, than of how to die. I’m very afraid of pain, and of things with twines. I like chocolate ice-cream. My dream is to travel by plane, to Las Vegas, the United States or to Acapulco, and to have a sister. I like to jump the rope, to play volleyball and to play with my friends. I like to watch TV, and to stay with my nephew, my mum and my dad. I’m afraid of solitude, love, myself, not doing things well, affection, engagements, not thinking things through, the others, violence, inequality, poverty, love. I’d wish that my aunty would stay with me, and that she would reconcile with my mother, with my mother and with my uncle, and that everything would be just like it was before. I liked to go for a walk with my aunty, and that she bought me anything I’d like on my birthdays. … Today I’m happy because it’s my birthday. I’m afraid of many things, but basically I’m afraid of death, because it frightens me that everyone I love a lot dies, of my friends and my family; especially my dad, as I feel that he’s my strength. I feel that he’s the root, and I’m the tree. I’d wish to stay with my mother, and to have a father. I’d wish that my mother wouldn’t drink, and when I’m grown up, I’d like to work as model or teacher. I’m afraid of heights. I’m afraid of being alone. The thing I wish the most is to be a dance teacher one day. And to stay all my life with Oscar. I’m afraid of heights, of wars, of vipers, of doing something and failing, of scorpions, of getting angry. I’d wish to have a baby-dog, to work as a model, to have very long hair, to have a veterinary to cure animals, to have many modern things. I’d wish to be more present and concentrated, to behave better and to move forward. One dream is to stay in my house, another one is to be with my daddy. I wish to pass secondary school. I wish to support my mother. I wish not to fight with others, but to make them happy instead. I wish to know my father. I’d wish to be the sister of Jessica. I’m afraid of heights, of staying very high and fall. I’m afraid of darkness and of not being able to see. I’m afraid of failing. I’m afraid of death – whenever I think about it, I despair a lot. I’m afraid of staying in closed spaces and of being alone. I’m afraid that something could happen to my family, an accident or something similar. And I’m afraid of a certain dream: it’s the dream of a door that when I touch it, it proves to be frozen. I’m afraid of not being able to speak. There’s a door leading to many dark paths. It’s as if you enter into an unknown space, and you don’t know what will happen as you pass through the door, you don’t know if what you’ll find behind it will be good or bad. I’m afraid of solitude, of being alone in a space that I don’t know, especially at night time. I’m afraid of fights and quarrels, of not being accepted, of not believing in myself, of getting homework, of not being understood. I’m afraid of being departed from my sisters, of not controlling me, of not knowing about things, of my life repeating itself, of not being able to express myself. I’m afraid of the future, of death, water, and solitude. I’m afraid of heights, and of having to go through a slow and painful death. I’m afraid of snakes, of scorpions, darkness, and strange sounds."+ More details

This performance of the group TanzLaboratorium investigates the complex of relationships "social–public–bodily" by creating a situation of infringing on the "private". It is a pre-situation, where there is nothing yet, but anything can happen. Also, here "post-" refers to after something; "Ukrainian body"(an exhibition at the Visual Culture Research Center at Kyiv-Mohyla Academy that was recently censored) – as a point of departure, a sign of emptiness, the radical absence of thinking about the body and the bodily. In a certain sense, this work is also an attempt to make the body visible, in other words, to reveal it again. This is also the zero stage of the group's next project, which is an attempt at artistic reflection on the events that are happening in the contemporary history of Ukrainian culture. The performer stands next to a pile of clothing on the floor; there are scissors nearby. Visitors are invited to use the scissors to turn the social body of the performer into just a body. Visitors are invited to cut the performer's clothes, shoes and hair. Inflicting bodily harm is not permitted. Warning: the performer may react to your actions as s/he sees necessary. ТanzLaboratorium is interested in balancing on the thin line between the violent act of removing clothes (as a social envelope) and the cutting of clothes as a "creative" act of ruining-creating. Once the clothing is destroyed, the performer gets dressed, and everything begins again. The action continues until there is no more clothing left. The performance will last a few hours.+ More details
