Abstract

The Living Net is a transdisciplinary project that explores tangible mediations of personal data and living archives. Weaving theory and praxis from dance, music, digital humanities, computer science, and engineering, The Living Net explores new methods for engaging users in real-time experiences with personal data production, or "data shed." We do this as a meditation on the torrents of data we produce in our everyday lives and to raise questions about how we value persons, objects, and information. Exploring the role of the body in conversations about personal data, The Living Net brings attention to the boundaries and power infrastructures erected when people are represented as disembodied, abstracted, "immaterial" metadata. In this, The Living Net offers real-time tactile experiences of personal data through the use of interactive vibrotactile interfaces and personal objects of meaning, both of which are woven into a hand-crocheted net (see Figures 1 and 2).
