Population Theatre
Population Theatre
2016
“Population Theatre­” is a scalable data-visualization theatre consisting of 7.5 billion individual computer-controlled points of light. The purpose of the piece is to create an experience that offers a one-to-one relationship between the world’s population and its data: every person is represented by a single point of light. “Population Theatre” is a platform for making data tangible, a direct representation of demographic data, and as such it can be used to create “data-dramatizations” that may help the public visualize data on political economy, cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, psychology, history, communications and other fields. People may stand on the stage and watch data performances, but they are also encouraged to walk along the corridors amongst the “rows” of monitors, physically “zooming-in” to see individual pixels, subverting the panoptic view and looking back at the public on the stage.
