The Library of Missing Data Sets

Are datasets capable of representing experiences beyond those that create and control them? The ongoing research project Missing Data Sets by Mimi Onuoha is a list of data sets that are missing – datasets that do not exist, but should. Their absence says something about the unquantified side of our lives and raises questions about those things that resist simple quantification. This absence leaves us wondering if there are advantages to ‘non-existence’. Browse through the files of missing data sets. What’s missing and why?
