Acknowledgments

This exhibition would not had been possible without the assistance and support from:

María Mencía. Thank you for creating a work specially for our exhibition, and for including Bremen in your journey around the world: Gateway to the World: Data Visualisation Poetics.

João Rui (a Jigsaw), who gave shape to what I had in mind. Together with Bremen’s university press (Uni-Druckerei Bremen), whose team was represented by Mr. Helmut Brammer, we were able to design all the materials shared with participants in the conference and visitors of the exhibition.

Anke Winsmann , who was patient enough to collect the Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Bremen requested books, later displayed at the exhibition. Thank you for being there and making sure that I had everything I needed, from duck-tape, to screen-cleaning spray. Also, I would like to thank your wonderful team for providing all the assistance during the exhibition.

Ulrich Achenbach who saved some old computers from oblivion and brought them to life for three days of fame and stardom. They looked perfect and shiny new to me. Thank you for making sure they were working before, and during the exhibition.
