From rural Moldova to urban Brazil to suburban Massachusetts, CODEGIRL follows teams of high-school aged girls from around the world who have three months to design an mobile app that solves a problem in their community. The winning team gets $10K to complete their app, but every girl discovers something valuable along the way.
Come join us for an evening with Owen Mundy and get an introduction to his investigations of space and its relationship to data. Among other projects, Owen will discuss “I Know Where Your Cat Lives” – a data visualization experiment exploring the public display of personal data using a sample of 1 million mapped cat photos leveraging a publicly available API.
Owen is a researcher, designer and technologist who investigates the relationship between data and public spaces. He has an MFA in Visual Arts from the University of California, San Diego and is an Associate Professor in Digital Media at Florida State University. His work has been covered in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Time Magazine, NPR’s All Things Considered, and Wired Magazine. Follow him @owenmundy
