The Data Battle
IMPAKT at Cirque du Data
Are you tired of all those pessimists who think our world is going to hell? Or, are you annoyed by the naivety of people who think that technology can solve all of our problems? In this data battle, both of these stances are addressed. We discuss with various artists how they work with the pitfalls and promises of our technological future.
This autumn cultural city lab RAUM and design agency Clever Franke will present Cirque du Data, an exhibition and data show that puts citizens first in the world of data. IMPAKT will bring a program of highlights of the festival to Leidsche Rijn and show how the interfaces of tomorrow will be part of our data-driven future.
With: Sabrina Verhage, Sander Veenhof, Klasien van de Zandschulp, Boyd Rotgans (studio RNDR)

Sander Veenhof― Speaker
With a university degree in computer science and my education at the Gerrit Rietveld art academy, my expertise is twofold. I have the skills to realise anything I imagine, and I like to use my imagination to work on innovative solutions. I'm fascinated by augmented reality, and with years of experience with various contexts, collaborations and purposes I have a clear picture on the potential of the technology now and in the future.
