Data Art


Object Identity - Data Visualisation

"The flexible exchange rate of bits remains the modus operandi, but the currency of the data outlet fluctuates in value - from ordered to scattered, meaningful to meaningless and so on. Given the identically encoded origin here, this treatment signals a distinctly asymmetrical rupture in prevailing systems of representation and signification, making interconnected expressions appear equal despite very obvious differences."

(Are Flagan, 2002, Sign of the net.art times, nettime.org)

I created these prints as part of my Object Identity artwork, I collated demographics and statistics from the internet about beer brands and beer drinkers for example, what brands Millennials, Baby Boomers or Generation X supposedly preferred to drink. I then visualised data by creating a variety of graphs and then output these as a series of digital prints. The title for each print is a play on the word stereotype.
