From Moebius's art deco sets in 'Tron' to William Gibson's 3D datascapes in 'Neuromancer', many artists have imagined what it might look like inside the machine. Cory Arcangel bypasses such stylized, anthropomorphic visions and simply shows us his raw data, 11 hours worth, in all its glitchy 8-bit nakedness. Arcangel tricked Quicktime into reading the binary data daily passing through his computer's RAM. The result is 'Data Diaries,' a collection of intriguing, abstract data 'movies' (complete with audible bleeps and squawks), available in color or black & white. Pass the pixelated popcorn! - Curt Cloninger
