Type/Dynamics at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam lets you experience data in fantastic news ways.Type/Dynamics at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam was created by Dutch design studio LUST, and the installation (as a sentient piece of art) searches for real-time locations in the news, including "Ground Zero", "Reichstag”, or "Tiananmen Square”, from there locating images from Google Street View and turning them into grids filled with new information. Instead of a typical photo representation, the location is presented in purely typographically form. Visitors are then 'transported’ to that location by wrapping themselves in all the news of the area.
"A visitor does not need to grasp all possible readings of a work at once," continues LUST. "Instead multiple story lines unfold over multiple readings. All aspects from content to movement, interaction, data collection and collaboration contribute to this new literature."
