Catherine D’Ignazio (a.k.a. kanarinka) is an artist, software developer and media researcher at the MIT Center for Civic Media. Her research centers around civic data and experimental geography — mapping the effects of informational, emotional, and political flows on the landscape. This includes mapping the global news media, measuring fear in post-9/11 urban environments, doing printmaking at the US-Mexico border or working with kids to make a neighborhood creek tell really bad jokes. Her current focus is a news recommendation system and game called “Terra Incognita” that helps people explore the world via global news stories.
Presented by the MFA in Information Design and Visualization.
Hosted by Dietmar Offenhuber, Assistant Professor at Northeastern University in the departments of Art + Design and Public Policy.
