Playing with Data


Australian National Maritime Museum

The National Maritime Museum in Greenwich is employing a data artist to ‘play’ with the data produced by our visitors and stored in the RE·THINK Digital data base.

RE·THINK Digital is a ground-breaking project to link, store and analyse visitor responses to digital and analogue interactives and activities across sites. The artist will be tasked with finding fun and expressive, ways to represent our visitor responses.

How has this residency affected how visitors interact with the galleries and collections and what impact has this had on staff and visitors? How playful can data be?
