For the second time in the past few weeks, Archinect has featured a thesis project by a recent Daniels Faculty graduate — part of a series of stories on student thesis projects completed within the past year. This time, the featured project is "Everyday Data," which was presented in fall 2019 by Rachel Chan.
"Everyday Data envisions how data aesthetic and infrastructure will infiltrate our domestic lives both culturally and physically in our visionary future," Rachel writes. "The internet continues to require an ever-growing network of physical data space – undersea cables, mega data centers, and so on – and an increasingly visible part of the rural landscape. If the internet is so prominent in our everyday lives, how can its infrastructure and aesthetic infiltrate our domestic lives both culturally and physically in the future?"
