Dataesthetics: Opening Reception

January 17 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

DATAESTHETICS : Opening Reception

The foreman Art Gallery invites you to the Opening Reception of its exhibition Dataesthetics. Dataesthetics focuses on a new aesthetic paradigm emerging from the ongoing revolution in data visualization. In a veritable sea of data, where the mathematical sublime as conveyed through Big Data influences how we read the world, graphic designers tasked with schematization become modern-day oracles, enunciators of knowledge and visual rhetoricians. The exhibition presents artists’ epistemological reflections on data collection and processing, the construction of knowledge and the rhetorical power of data visualization. Covering a wide spectrum of approaches ranging from craftsmanship and community art to digital and logarithmic modelling, Dataesthetics looks at the representational techniques developed to make sense of today’s world.
