Greenhouse 數據森林

Greenhouse​​

Greenhouse is a generative data visualization installation. The work is inspired by the problems of Taiwan and is based on the survey and analysis of big data. We gather and compile the big data from over seven hundred thousand fan pages on social media, it is found that “Misanthropic", “Low birth rate", “Population ageing " has become a hot topic in Taiwan, the behavioral and linguistic information from the public space on Facebook, and pull out open information of Taiwan’s population from the Open Government Data. We use information of posts, likes, comments, and shares gathered from Facebook’s “Misanthropic" keywords as our material, and combine them with the changes of Taiwan’s population structure throughout the years and population birth rate, creating a distinctive visual narrative. We convert the data from different periods over the years into visual images of a forest, which gradually evolve into a story about a growing forest. As the overlapping trees, leaves, flowers and fruits keep growing, we point out the starting point of this work: “perceiving humanity and environment from numbers, words and actions." The artistic concept of this work is “calculation anxiety or the co-existing initiative of positive thinking." Although the image and initial work are created and interpreted by creator, we hope that all viewers can participate in the project. After all, these data are about their online daily life and reflect the experience buried in their consciousness.

數據森林

《數據森林Greenhouse》靈感來自於臺灣現今所處的時代有哪些問題開始,從大數據探勘與拆解出發,挖掘超過70萬粉絲專頁的社群大數據,發現「厭世」、「少子化」、「高齡化」成為臺灣熱門的議題,那些發生在臉書公共空間上的行為和言語資料,及擷取臺灣內政部人口統計處開放資料進行數據彙整。當臉書的「厭世」貼文、讚、留言、分享被集合起來成為作品的材料,再與歷年臺灣人口結構變化與出生人口數據運算形構出另一種視覺敘事,藉由這些歷年不同時期的數據資料轉換為森林意象之視覺影像,逐漸演化成森林的生長故事,透過重重疊疊的樹、葉、花、果不斷成長變化,也就點出了這件作品起點:「感受、人與環境,從數量、詞彙和動作」,創作圍繞的核心則為:「計算焦慮或與之並存的正面思考倡議」,映像與物件化初始雖由創作者製造詮釋,最終希望觀者參與投射,那些數據關於他們的網路日常,也是來自意識裡的經驗。

2017年,資訊視覺化裝置,依場地而定
