Exhibition: Live by data, die by data

Reason for embargo
The Big Bang Data exhibition at Somerset House in London pushes the idea that today's data explosion is catapulting us into a future in which everything is transformed; a world that is irreconcilable with the institutions and societies of the past. Beyond the considerable technical challenges of the contemporary data deluge, the different roles and situations in which data are produced and consumed are far from being well understood — and their consequences are even harder to predict. Big Bang Data attempts to showcase these uncertainties by recapitulating public discussions about big data through the work of artists, designers, journalists and activists.
