INTERROGATING THE INVISIBLE

Project aim
In this project, the Leistavian Federal Bureau of Information is gathering statistics and information about how people identify with their culture. We are also interested to know whether there are any differences between people with one cultural identity and those with two. The information is collated and presented visually initially as part of a project for the 13th International Symposium on Electronic Art in San Jose, and then at other exhibitions. All information is strictly confidential. For further information and project context, please view the about the project page. Links to visualisations of the data can be found here.
