Join us on Tuesday, July 16 for a look at how data melds with art. We’ll feature two women leveraging data to create beautiful and compelling art: Laurie Frick and Lauren Malkani.

If you’ve driven a car in Austin, you’ve probably seen Laurie Frick’s work. She’s the artist behind the underpass at Lamar and 5th Street that translates data from Instagram photos of Austin landmarks into a large-scale visualization. Her 500-foot installation scratches the surface of Laurie’s data-based visual work, which includes installations at galleries, public spaces and corporations around the country.

Lauren Malkani is co-founder of Seven Mile Media. With Nick Harbaugh, she creates mission-driven digital projects that focus on environmental and human rights issues. While based in Austin, Lauren recently earned her MFA from Parsons’ Design and Technology program. Check out her work: &

Free light food and drinks are provided.

Studio 919 is an events space connected to The Texas Tribune. Street parking is available around Studio 919, and it’s free after 6 pm on the day of our event.

See you soon!
