I’ve been talking to artist/coder Gavin Baily about Datama and showing him around vvvv. He produced with Tom Corby a really fascinating project called CYCLONE.SOC, which described in their own words is:-

A bringing together two contemporary phenomena:-

  • severe weather, the project uses weather data that charts the emergence and progress of hurricanes.
  • the polarized nature of debate that occurs in certain online newsgroup forums.

The CYCLONE.SOC application is available to download from here. Videos of the application in action are here.

Gavin’s interest is in Datama is based upon the repurposing of RSS/API feeds and how that data can be re-used/re-read/re-thought for social and political commentary. He’ll be chipping in words of wisdom and a possibly a few prototype ideas to this blog.

Gavin – stand up to the ‘blog mic’ when you have a chance and say hello.
