Great Exhibition of the North – Every Thing Every Time: Theatre Royal


As part of the Great Exhibition of the North watch the live story of Newcastle unfold with an installation that turns city smart data into a constantly changing poem from 22nd June to 9th September 2018 outside the Theatre Royal in Newcastle.

What stories can be uncovered from a city using the data generated by its visitors, residents and workers? Every thing every time takes information from our interactions to tell a new story about the people and places of Newcastle.

Watch how the real-time data measuring fluctuations including weather, traffic and travel is used to generate a poem that’s written in real time and displayed on a large scale outside the Theatre Royal.

Can we see the urban landscape differently through the technologies that quantify it – the work by artist Naho Matsuda questions the role of data in our lives as well as its use and value.
