Hus is a temporal generative art data visualization about care work and gender. Each variation of the work provides a unique perspective of the gender gap in care work within Danish society. Utilizing time and movement as a visualizer technique, the underlying data set is meant to be understood by the spectator through prolonged exposure to the work.

Hus changes its expression over a 24 hour cycle to visualize how care work can be understood to be split between men, women and queer people in Danish society. Each of the three main colors in Hus correspond to a different group of people. Each group has different movements, corresponding to how the data shows that they approach care work.

The data comes from the report “Hvordan bruger danskerne tiden?” from 2018 by Rockwool Fonden. The report does not include data for queer people, and they are therefore included as a separate group with a somewhat random pattern of movements to emphasize the lack of representation in research.

Hus is released in collaboration with OFFICE IMPART as part of Node — a platform to explore the Boundaries of Digital Art.

Hus is made with Three.js.
