Magnetic Data Tape

Vicky Virgin 2013-present

Choreographer/demographic analyst, Vicky Virgin investigates how art and statistical literacy intersect in the public realm. Coming this summer, Vicky Virgin will direct a band of roving performers as they make their way throughout the Museum of Art and Design, stopping along the way to disseminate data. Statistics written on the old magnetic tape data storage used by the city planning department will be reeled out while a cameraman and interviewer test visitors’ knowledge of the city. A string of maps and graphs will be displayed nearby. Look for eye glasses and big pair of scissors.
