The visible archive - Mitchell WhitelawThis month we would like to welcome long standing Canberra dorkbot affiliate Mitchell Whitelaw to talk about a recent project he has been working on with the National Archives of Australia under their Ian Maclean Award.

The Visible Archive is a research project in the visualisation of archival datasets, supported by the National Archives of Australia under their Ian Maclean Award (2008). It explores the potential of interactive visualisation to navigate, interpret and analyse large cultural and historical datasets. In this talk Mitchell will present interactive sketches from the project, visualising the Archives entire collection – made up of some 65,000 Series – and navigating a single Series, A1, containing thousands of pages of digitised records.


Mitchell Whitelaw is an artist, researcher and writer with interests in data aesthetics and generative systems in art and design. He leads the Master of Digital Design program in the Faculty of Arts and Design at the University of Canberra.
