Data Arts

An investigation into emerging approaches to visualising, interpreting and using data.
Data Arts explores new ways of seeing and how the data dimension can change the ways we live, play and create. Designers and artists visualise the invisible layer of complex data that surrounds our daily lives, making data come alive. They amplify our ability to understand beyond the range of our senses and nurture new insights into the invisible infrastructures that make up our world.

Data is the evidence, the trace of everything that has past, a slice of time which once was, and it is changing our future.
