The Trace Project is a collaborative, exploratory, creative data visualization/materialization project created by Nikki Stevens, Christiana Rose, and Jacque Wernimont. Jointly supported by Dartmouth’s Neukom Institute and the Digital Humanities and Social Engagement Cluster, Trace was initially conceived as an opportunity to understand more about three dimensional data representation. With the outbreak of the COVID pandemic, we’ve had to adjust our original work plan and have been working on developing ways of sharing what was meant to be an embodied experience in a more distributed, individual way.
