Soft Data
Even as we sleep, our devices continue to create, store and share data. Despite Apple’s efforts to convince us that this data is somewhere up in the clouds, the reality sees our digital outputs being stored and transported by hugely physical means. ‘Soft Data’ is an installation piece which sees our phone’s overnight activity being knitted over an 8 hour period, highlighting the unconscious creation that occurs during our time of rest. The resulting textile piece is a detailed manifestation of this activity, existing to remind us that digital data has tangible weight and consequence.
