We are delighted to announce that one of our first commissions The Future by Alicia Eggert and Safwat Saleem is being shown at the opening of the Cartagena Data Festival in Columbia.

The work is being shown as part of the Open Data Institute's Data as Culture program which commissioned and exhibits art that *uses data as an art material and/or subject for artistic*research.

Supported by the Overseas Development Initiative, Alicia and I will attend the event and show her work alongside my recent work We Need Us (requires Chrome or Firefox).

We're both excited to be heading to the Carribean sea-side to talk data and art with an amazingly diverse international crowd. We've even spotted a fellow TED fellow in the mix - Jon Gosier.
