The Sixth Room

Art & Design, Code, Data Visualization

The Sixth Room was an online visualization of the network of virtual and physical audiences visiting Sarah Sze’s Triple Point over the course of la Biennale di Venezia 2013. Constantly updated from analog and digital visit records, “The Sixth Room” was an ever-changing visual record of public engagement with Triple Point. During the Biennale, the Sixth Room was installed in the Bloomberg Lounge.
