"Angewandte Atlas"

Archive Digitisation; Research Project and Exhibition

17 May - 30 May 2023

Funded by OEH

Die Universität für angewandte Kunst in Wien is an institution of diversity; being one of the first academies that female students were able to study, having 1700 students from 70 countries in 2021.

With this project, we aim to demonstrate the demography of Angewandte in years focusing on the gender and geography of students. It will emphasize the growing diversity inside the community with the method of digitizing the archive and statistics, visualization of the data and turning it into artwork as an outcome; an atlas of the cultural diversity of Angewandte.

As a multi-layered digital archive research project, the statistics are studied, re-analysed, and processed using data visualisation and creative coding tools. Data and the processing of these data embrace the art form.

The artwork is a living body existing in continuous connection forms and a constant change of the cross-cultural structure of the university. The final artworks will be exhibited in Node Media Lab’s exhibition space as a video and digital print installation which reflects the evolution of cultural variety over the years.
