This week was all about unexpected structures, how data points turn into something else. About how an algorithm and a few data sets can turn into an audio representation of income inequality. How stories can be rendered on an X and Y axis. How the familiar man on the street (aka vox pop) can turn into art as women talk about street harasment, and talk back.
Take a look:
The Data is the Turntable. DJ Brian Foo’s built a song that tracks income inequality along the subway ride from Brooklyn to Manhattan to the Bronx. Four minutes and 45 fascinating seconds.
As always, if you spot (or make) a great project at the intersection of tech, media and storymaking art, email the details to me at email@example.com so I can check it out for an upcoming edition of the Scan. You can peruse our archive here.
