Open Plaques

As an Artist In Residence at Centre for Creative Collaboration it is my job to document activities around the centre. Open Plaques was one such group that came to the centre.  Open Plaques is a community-based project begun in 2009 which documents, catalogs and promotes commemorative plaques installed on buildings and other public landmarks in the UK and beyond with the aim of making its website and database these historical markers.

YRS: Pupil Data Set


Rewired State and Young Rewired State were given access to the National Pupil Dataset, made available courtesy of The Department For Education over the weekend of July 7th – 8th, 2012. It’s not everyday you get to interview Michael Gove MP who was, at the time, The Education Secretary.  This video gives the viewer an overview of what was covered and discussed over the weekend.  This hack was based around the National Pupil Dataset, a vast and unique dataset that includes the anonymized national public exam results of around 600,000 English schoolchildren through key stages 2, 4 and 5. The Department for Education pre-released the dataset so that both they and the public could better understand it, and also wanted to identify any security risks or obvious stories in the data before public release.

It can be seen on Paul’s site here. I would love to work with him again, so if you want to commission us we would be really happy to make an film for you 🙂
