Data is all around us, but we cannot see it. What if the invisible networks in our city could be made visible to everyone, even those who are offline?
Some people are not aware that their mobile usage leaves behind digital traces, or how it would look like if all the data traffic in Singapore were to be visualised at the same time. We want to turn the abstract notion of connectivity into something that is visible and physical like a postcard – and by doing so, increase awareness of big data and its potentials.
