DISCUSSION

Data visualization art


Just saw this and thought it may be interesting in the context of a discussion that questions formulas like:
(rice+data)/technology=art

information aesthetics blog about a rice project

DISCUSSION

Data visualization art


Basically, I think that I agree most with the idea that even if the work is "finished" it perhaps presents a potential that may not be explored. I need to get some more new media sketches too!

DISCUSSION

Data visualization art


I see what you guys are saying, and I don't disagree with you. It is important to draw some sort of distinction between what is work that is still being developed and something that is fully realized. The question then has to do with how do we discuss projects that can be viewed publicly that aren't fully completed or still in "demo" stage? And, how do we create a space where work can be viewed and discussed without it being fully developed? Finally, what if some work is meant for us to question our relationships to both technology and information and isn't particularly about an "object" to be viewed even though an object is present?

DISCUSSION

Data visualization art


Okay. I'm not going to talk too much about the work you discussed on your blog. I haven't seen the work other than around the net, so I don't think I have a very good view of what it might be. However, I don't think that I can agree with you that art that uses data visualization as a means of generating a body of work is shallow.

The way that I see it is that a lot of work that uses or references data visualization points to the shift in our visual culture into one that is more centered on information. If everything can be reduced down to information, then it is possible to represent that information in a visually interesting way. I don't have a complete argument for you here, but currently I've been trying to look deeper into this issue and here is one place that I am starting:

Regardless, its a very interesting topic.
