Biophonic garden uses an laboratory setup to make an dialogue between plants perceptible to the human ears. Sprouted corn seeds are arranged in a grid, which is situated in a container with water. The underwater environment is picked up by microphones, which allow visitors to listen to a dialogue of young corn plants. While the plant roots are submerged in water, a constant tone of 220 hertz is played into the water and has an influence on the growing of the roots, which bend towards the sound source. The work raises questions about the communication of plants and the acoustic environment we humans life in. (via Graduation Festival 2014 » Sebastian Frisch)

"Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well documented. In a 2010 survey, Wikimedia found that less than 13% of its contributors are female.[1] The reasons for the gender gap are up for debate: suggestions include leisure inequality, how gender socialization shapes public comportment, and the contentious nature of Wikipedia’s talk pages. The practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. Many articles on notable women in history and art are absent on Wikipedia. This represents an alarming aporia in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge."

How Street Maps Can Be Sexist | Co.Exist | ideas impact

OpenStreetMap is a massive free map of the world, editable by anyone. Companies like Flickr, Foursquare, and Craigslist all use it in their products. But unlike Google Maps, which rigorously chronicles every address, gas station, and shop on the ground, OpenStreetMap’s perspective on the world is skewed by its contributors. “When data is being contributed to OpenStreetMap, there is a specific bias because people contribute data they are interested in and familiar with. If they’re all male, maybe they forget to put in day care centers,” says Pickle. There are far more male contributors than female contributors to OpenStreetMap, though female contributions have been increasing, according to Pickle, who still works for Boundless in the role of chief revenue officer. “Anecdotally, there’s more info [on OpenStreetMap] on strip clubs than day care centers,” he says.

First Date Noodles
Domestic Data Streamers This is the opening dish in a series of three, all investigating the sex life of young people in Barcelona. This one shows, who will have sex on the first date. 86 per cent of men, and 59 per cent of women, as it turned out in a spontaneous and informal survey among the cooks’ Facebook friends. The messy “noodle ball” represents that part of the data set, and the color indicates the people’s gender. The abstinent men and women are represented by the straight noodles not touching each other. See also In & Out and Sugarsm. (via Data Cuisine | First Date Noodles)
