Data as new a Art Medium

When Jacob introduced Project 3, I was lost as to what we were supposed to do. I decided to do more research on how artists transformed scientific data into a kind of aesthetic form.

I learned that there is an increasing number of data artists who use apps, GPSes, etc. to create conceptual works. There are two types of data artists: those who use large scale scientific data and those who collect data themselves.

Check out this article for more interesting information about the relationship between data and art and about different data artists.
