Join fellow builders across the state so that all 72 counties are well represented by their ‘stacks of color.’ Help stack the creative vision of UW-Madison artist-in-residence Stuart Flack to make art and science an interactive and expressive endeavor. Flack teams with UW-Madison associate professor Kevin Ponto and assistant professor Karen Schloss to understand how Wisconsinites perceive the color of ‘hope,’ the color of ‘boredom’ and the color of your favorite song!

Participants can build their stacks online, or they can build in person at the Discovery Building during the four days of the festival. The stacks of color will be showcased in the windows of the Discovery Building to make an amazing representation of art and data. On Sunday, October 14, Ponto and Schloss will join Flack to scan the data stored in the stacks of color and convene a panel discussion around the project. If you can’t make it in person, there will be a video archive of the presentation available soon after the Wisconsin Science Festival.

Teachers will have the ability to analyze and manipulate the data for data visualization projects in the classroom after the Wisconsin Science Festival at https://wisconsinsciencefest.org/teachers/.
