Daniel Evans 

Daniel Evans’ Archipelago is a multimodal creative project encompassing sculpture, print, and interactive digital environments. Inspired by the speculative world-building of Ursula Le Guin, Selkie folktales of Scotland and the Faroe Islands, and open-world videogames, Archipelago presents an environment generated entirely from the location tracking data of a single Google user account. In doing so the project negotiates the double-bind of data collection and analytics, exploring both the generative possibilities afforded by these technologies and methods, and their potential abuses as tools of power and control.
