The FOREVER-DO Infestation

The Forever-Do project, explores the idea of "fishing" into data sets in order to extract coherent patterns of data that are represented in visual artworks. The Project was developed as a collaboration between computer science researcher Carlo Ferigato from the Joint Research Centre (JRC), Italy. The JRC is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy. The SciArt project intends to integrate art in the JRC's multidisciplinary work on an equal footing. Jill has been an artist expert for the EU Commission since June 2018, and was artist in residence at the JRC during the first 6 months of 2019.

 

The FOREVER-DO sculpture infests the site for landmine detection research, the Carl Friedrich Gauss Laboratory at the JRC. This analogue project captures, patterns of data flow authorised by individual participation in the Forever-Do Game, then configured in a new context in the Forever-Do Sculpture.
