The Data Souls

Contributors note: 

Set in a distant future, The Data Souls imagines the discovery of seven rusted data storage devices that define our contemporary age. Their contents use various data sets (currency values, the Human Freedom Index, provincial Chinese male/female birth ratios, Australian rabbit populations, global temperature anomalies, and national average time spent on the Internet per day) to generate multiple text performances. This is then used to 3D model and print data-determined artefacts. While the data is knowable, its causes and reverberations are not.
