            Abstract

            This demonstration develops a series of illustrated case studies based on data-driven artworks developed by the author in the last five years. The artworks all examine the notion of using data as a raw material that can be filtered, manipulated or moulded into representations which suggest an experience of the data, rather than an understanding of it. The preoccupation of these works Isn’t finding meaning or answers in the data, but rather to evoke Impressions in the viewer, to provide alternative perspectives, or perhaps pose new questions. Aesthetic considerations are also derived from the unique nature of each individual dataset, in the same way one would engage with any other type of raw material. The interactive presentation will reflect on and situate these works according to theories, ideas and paradoxes within the current discourse on data art, for instance data as anti-information, anti-sublime, as an immaterial material and or as a found object.
