Leon Cmielewski and Josephine Starrs' Seeker is a large-scale, interactive, data-mapping installation that explores the political themes of diaspora and displacement. It uses Flash to weave together a range of data, including spectators' family information, in an immersive environment. In this article, the authors place the work within the context of cinematic and design aesthetics.
