In the context of cultural and artistic space, data is not only defined by information, but is connected to a history, defining the context for that data. No artworks are isolated elements; they are all rooted in society and culture, including digital art.
Coders will receive datasets of selected artworks to work on. Over the weekend, they have to find a creative way to highlight the context of these datasets through one or more of the following categories:
* Social media interaction (Twitter-API, Instagram-API etc.).
* AI/ML data processing
* Augmented / virtual reality,
* Blockchain-based technology,
* Smart assistants (Alexa, GoogleHome, Siri, etc.),
* Data correlation and visualization
Winner will receive INR 40,000.
The jury will focus on the following criteria with identical relevance:
* Technical implementation: less is more. We prefer simple, stable solutions rather than using a sledgehammer to crack a nut while using state-of-the-art tools
* Design, user interface, usability. Remind yourself that your app targets people of all backgrounds, young and old, digital native or digital immigrant.
* Concept regarding the data context. How did you use both design and technology to highlight the background and relations of the dataset?
