Owen Mundy worked along other participants to create a collaboration at the Beautiful Data II Workshop, which took place July 6 – July 16, 2015 at Harvard University.
The participants were taught skills and concepts necessary to successfully use the open collections available at art museums. This workshop focused on “difficult collections.”
The theme of the workshop was “Telling Stories About Art with Open Collections.” Owen Mundy was one of the presenters, along with other participants who are visualization and museum experts. The group of people participating included fellow artists, curators, designers, and scholars in attendance.
There were presentations by known visualization and museums experts, breakout sessions exploring how to represent problem data and collections, and talks by participants and Metalab staff and fellows, including a wonderful group of artists, curators, designers, and scholars in attendance.
