Call for Papers - please forward. ART OF PERVASIVE DATA: DEADLINE EXTENDED Editor: FutureEverything

You are invited to submit articles and artworks for a new issue of the Leonardo Electronic Almanac edited by FutureEverything. This is a dedicated edition of the leading online journal exploring the FutureEverything 2010 themes of the city and open data. Deadline extended: Abstracts due 10 September 2010

ART OF PERVASIVE DATA This issue of LEA will seek cross disciplinary thinking on art in the age of pervasive data. LEA is soliciting texts and artworks by artists, researchers, and scholars involved in the exploration of themes including: The networked city Data visualisation Open data Hyperlocal data and the interpretation of proximity Community use and generation of data Novel means of navigating the data terrain. Cities today are vast repositories of information, endlessly collecting and archiving data. The growth and proliferation of databases and libraries that we access and update in the course of our every day lives, and new techniques of accessing, visualising and using that data, leads to new forms of representation and social interaction. The vast scale of these databases brings us to a tipping point, entering an era that is increasingly data-driven. This poses new challenges, such as the demands of making sense of a million different data sources, issues of provenance, interoperability, trust and accountability. The potential for more innovative and novel interpretations of this landscape by creative invention, social innovation and scientific intervention is there to be explored. The FutureEverything editorial group consists of Karen Gaskill, Drew Hemment, Michelle Hirschhorn, Michelle Kasprzak, Julian Tait and Kate Taylor.
