Cqrrelations

Cqrrelations was a work session lasting from 12 till 23 January 2015 in deBuren, inviting data travellers, writers, numbergeeks, programmers, artists, mathematicians, storytellers, and other tech creative souls to explore the world of digital non-relations, desanalysis, blurry categorisations and crummylations in the Big Data that shapes our daily reality and language.

The work session was a space for theories and practices, for experiments, discussions, prototypes… Human and non-human (in-)expertise facilitated the exploration the topic. Parts of the process was documented on cqrrelations.constantvzw.org, possibly to end up in some forms of publication later on.
