Data is a medium which can be dynamic, manipulated, bent, carved into something beautiful. It is ever changing by those that define it whether it be machine or human.
I have been passionate about exploring ways of translating live data into interactive art pieces, to give a new perspective of what data is… or can be.
Some of my work involves cell phones or mobile devices using cell phones signals to dynamically create visual compositions which are displayed on the cell phone screen. Cell phones creating art for cell phones. Other pieces of art, I have been exploring how internet users define abstract terms by using social media tools such as flickr and/or twitter to dynamically create visual montages… A visual & interactive exploration into folksonomy.
And other pieces of interactive art pieces based off people physical world motions as translated by a motion tracking web camera to produce dynamically creating art pieces.
