Data Visual

Cover of Data Visual

A spirit of linkage, synergy and energy churned up in Adelaide in the 1970s, generating the birth of Artlink and an ever-building wave carrying it to the present day.

Data visualisation is the portrait or topographical landscape of our time. As big data has grown, data visualisation has developed as a way for us to understand, navigate and interact with structures of knowledge that are, for the most part, invisible, managed by equally invisible algorithms. This edition profiles work by artists and data specialists who use data as part of their practice, for diverse educational, exhibition and presentation outcomes in physical, virtual and screen spaces.
