Drawing the Line: What happens when the data gets graphic? 
What does it mean to give shape to relationships? Can we recognize the quality of relationships by their shape? What if we could use data to “see” the contours of injustice? And if the answer is yes (or even maybe) then what are the implications of this? For how we understand ourselves? And for how we might redress the uneven patterns of interaction and co-existence that shape our day-to-day lives?
