"Women have been historically labeled as both nurturing and dangerous, both goddess and whore. I like representing both the softness of the Vergin Mary and the fierceness of the Goddess Kali by decorating the naked female body with razor blades. Also, for me there is a way to reach the sublime by taking the risk of being vulnerable. My body is a physical vehicle that currently can bring me to this level of ecstasy and that is vulnerable to death and decay."

Carrie Mae Rose in "The Sublime and the Vulnerable. Th art of Carrie Mae Rose" by Zoe Romano

I have to say, however, that the field of data art (or infoviz, dataviz, and all the other names used to define it) isn’t so interesting. In my opinion it deals in great measure with nothing more than a fashion, joined to an ideology of latent technicality, according to which “visualize” – i.e., showing “latent patterns of information” – is in itself something aesthetically right from an aesthetic point of view. Things become interesting when we find an attempt to combine the human with something, though set in motion by the species, which gains features that transcend it, to the extent that it becomes a kind of an unknown otherness.
