Research Driven Art
Caroline Sinders is an artist and researcher whose work explores the intersections of critical design, trauma, data, and AI as art. This talk will explore the methodology she’s created to guide both her art and research practice, called “research driven art.” Inspired by photojournalism, critical design, and open source software, research driven art is a process driven artistic methodology and approach to knowledge mobilization.
Caroline Sinders is a machine learning design researcher and artist. She is the founder of Convocation Design + Research, a design and research agency focusing on the intersections of machine learning, user research, designing for public good, and solving communication difficult problems. As a designer and researcher, she's worked with groups like Amnesty International, Intel, IBM Watson, the Wikimedia Foundation as well as others. She is also a research fellow with Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and Policy.
Please join Caroline on April 16 for a Feminist Data Set Workshop. In the session, participants will collect feminist data beginning with an introduction to machine learning, data, and design thinking, and leading into a collaborative and facilitated process with the objective of building a feminist data set from the ground up. Workshop participants will explore the potential of data to intervene in larger civic and private networks. The workshop is intersectional and trans and non-gender binary inclusive.
