Human Ecosystems

Human Ecosystems Relazioni is a private research center which uses data as a cultural artefact, to generate cultural acceleration.

We transform cities, buildings, territories, organizations and communities into big data generators. We transform this data into a digital commons, so that it enters the public sphere and it engages people to govern it. And then we bring it to the public space, through visualizations, education, art, design, data museums, data theater and more, to make sure that it is accessible and usable by everyone, in order to bring about cultural acceleration.
