Data Pipe Dreams – Edinburgh Art Festival 2018

What if your hairdryer could buy energy at 2am and sell it to people drying their hair on a Friday night? What if you could see how sharing your YouTube comments could affect your employability? What if the Blockchain could spark thousands of micro acts of kindness to transform Edinburgh for the better?

biomorphis has been commissioned by Design Informatics / The University of Edinburgh / Tesco Bank to design and help prefabricate a pavilion to experience all of this and more. It showcases prototypes and interactive installations by Design Informatics researchers, Masters students and partners at Tesco Bank. The Pavilion’s exhibits investigate the possibilities of designing with data, and how this can enrich or challenge our personal, economic and social lives. Come and have a play and explore what are now data pipe dreams, but not for long…
