An exhibition on our relationship to data with artworks, installations, and a piece of data sonification by me, “While I was not there”, first presented at Portobeseno 2017.
Our paper “DISCLOSING CYBER ATTACKS ON WATER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS. AN EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH TO THE SONIFICATION OF THREATS AND ANOMALOUS DATA” , the first tangible result of a six month collaboration with Singapore University of Technology and Design, has been accepted and will be presented at the 25th conference on Auditory Display which this year takes place at Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK. A report on the work can be found on my blog.
I will be teaching a foundation course on sound design and sound branding with a particular focus on its potentialities for fashion art direction at the international fashion institute Polimoda (Florence) this year.
I had the opportunity to present my research on Data Sonification at the 2019 edition of 2CO - Communicating Complexity Conference held this year at Density Design Lab at the Politecnico di Milano. This time, the presentation focused on our latest project of sonifying cyber attacks alerts for water plants infrastructure.
I took part together with Francesca Gleria to the 2018 edition of the International Conference on Auditory Display with the paper “Humanising Data through Sound: Res Extensae and a User-Centric Approach to Data Sonification”. You can read the full paper here.
