Laurie Frick: I Want My Data

Dec 6, 2021 · New York, United States of America

We will be having two events in December. On December 6, The Dallas/Fort Worth Meetup has invited us to join them with Laurie Frick speaking on "I Want My Data". Details are below. This will have a two-step registration process.

Leland Wilkinson, author of "The Grammar of Graphics," will speak to us on December 14 on "A Distance-preserving Matrix Sketch." Details are on our Web page.

Laurie just filmed a data art commercial with Lexus that you can see on YouTube:

Laurie Frick is a data artist exploring the bumpy future of data captured about us. We’ve experienced the decade when humans shifted from mysterious beings - to big data algorithms, where everything about us can be known. Rather than worry, Frick envisions a time when personal data is a peek into our unique identity and just possibly a glimpse into our future. Using her background in high-technology Frick creates large scale art works, anticipating the day when patterns of behavior become patterned artworks and the mass of data will predict our lives. Her talk and deep experience with this topic make a compelling argument for why she wants her data, will companies give it back?

Hosted by the Dallas-Fort Worth DataViz Meetup Group, this virtual event is being shared with multiple DataViz Meetup groups across the country.

SPEAKER: Laurie Frick uses data to examine what we can know about ourselves. In her hand-built installations, drawings and small works she experiments with how we will consume the mass of data increasingly captured about us. Evidence of her engineering background and long-history in high-tech are seen in the deep data analysis and detailed explanations of how this future will unfold. Her work about the future of data were recently featured on NPR’s All Things Considered, Atlantic and Wired Magazine; she has been invited to talk at Google, SXSW, Stanford and TEDx. Recipient of numerous residencies and awards, including Samsung Research, Yaddo, Bemis and Facebook. She holds an MFA from the New York Studio School, an MBA from University of Southern California and studied at NYU’s ITP program that melded art and technology into her current data work. Recent installations include public art in downtown Austin, CapitalOne, Facebook, Texas A&M and Michigan State University. She has shown at numerous galleries in Los Angeles, in New York with inclusion in an ongoing exhibition at the Musee de Civilization in Quebec.
