When I survey the issues Artlink has published over the years, I’m struck by the way they pose questions, leave gaps for the reader, invite a sense that there’s much more to be said, imaged, discussed and dreamed. I’m struck by the fact that they’re still pertinent. Ahead of their time.

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.
