United States

Can we collect and interpret data beyond our usual senses? How might we understand data differently if we produced it in colors, or claps, or smells? Using our analytical instrument collection and some interesting historical attempts to collect and share data under extreme circumstances, we will rethink the forms data takes in our lives. 

Discussion led by Erin McLeary.

This event is free, but registration is required.
