“Invisible Airs”: a film on big data

Invisible Airs from acacia films on Vimeo.

The UK artist collective Yoha created the above meditation on the "civic machine" that runs our societies: data. 

[W]e can think of a municipal authority as a complex social, technical, administrative machine powered by the formation of 'truths' pinned on timely maps. In this instance, civic 'truth' does not necessarily have to be true for everyone. So long as it's 'true' for those who take part in the system of its production, regulation, distribution, circulation and operation of it's authoritative statements.
