Panorama of the exhibition

Exhibition Statement

Traditionally the tool of the statistician and engineer, information visualization has increasingly become a powerful new medium for artists and designers as well. Owing in part to the mainstreaming of computer graphics and the democratization of information sources on the Internet, this new cadre of creative researchers has discovered the possibility of visualization techniques to reveal thought-provoking but otherwise hidden narratives. Often using little more than home computers and widely available programming toolkits, artists and designers have taken material evidence into their own hands and expanded the conceptual horizons of information visualization as a mode of artistic practice and critical inquiry.

This exhibition examines the merging of artistic intention and visualization technique. We seek artworks that reveal information patterns in aesthetic, provocative and innovative ways. The goal of the exhibit is to prompt viewers towards greater introspection about what information is worth visualizing and why.
