Data Sensing the Mississippi (proposal)

The Anthropocene highlights limitations in existing frameworks
for data collection and analysis with the suggestion that researchers have run up against the limits of the knowable. This has been revealed in a number of ways: an inadequacy in existing techniques to analyze a changing and uncertain future, challenges to the way in which researchers frame human activities relative to environmental transformation, and the politics that inform what questions can be asked. How are artists and researchers associated with Mississippi. An Anthropocene River project engaged in explorations of the limits of the knowable, and what role does the concept of the Anthropocene have in prompting such questioning? This data sensing device was developed in collaboration with the Mississippi.
