Feminist Data Set
Feminist Data Set is a multi-year ongoing art project that combines lectures, workshops, and calls to action to collect feminist data. What is feminist data? Feminist data can be art works, essays, interviews, and books that are from, about or explore feminism and a feminist perspective. The creation of this feminist data set will act as a means to combat bias and introduce the possibility of data collection as a feminist practice, aiming to produce a slice of data to intervene in larger civic and private networks. Increasingly moving towards design, the series explores how data and interfaces can be agents of change within machine learning systems that are utilized by the public and private sectors of our daily lives.
This work has been shown at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, SOHO20 Gallery, SPACE Art and Technology Center, De-leb Banner Repeater, and Resonate Festival.
The project was shortlisted for a prize here. An interview about the current iteration of Feminist Data Set is here.
