We live in a perpetual state of aftermath. The data we collect today represent reverberations of past events; edited, interpreted, and distilled to tell a story of history. Data drives our narratives and shapes not only the future but also our vision of the future — a narrative of us and where we expect to be. Who is telling that story, and how does the aftermath of events shape how it’s told?

This year, we invite artists to explore how data reflects (and does not reflect) these lived aftermaths and to interpret the idea of aftermath through data. How does data define and organize time and space in our articulations about the world? How has the past molded our present and how will we sustain our future? Will we drown in a flood of information or make meaning from the mess?

Some questions we are thinking about:

  • What aftermaths are we living with today? What footprints are we leaving behind?
    Does data have an expiration date? When does it become leftovers or residue of the past?
  • How does the time at which we tell the story shape it? When does the aftermath begin? Is it too early or too late to begin projecting a narrative of our future?
  • How does the aftermath provide a unique space to reimagine histories? Or to create speculative visions of the future? How can that space be used or misused?
  • Can new understandings of the past or visions for the future be used to rework existing data? What might the data of current aftermaths look like in the future?
  • How are we learning lessons, mourning losses, and preparing for our new future? Can we harness the aftermath to provoke collective action and real-world change?
