Data Art 2011

28 Jul 2011

Outlandish Ideas were proud to present some of our data visualisation work at the Data Art conference last week.

The conference was the culmination of two years work by Outlandish, TraceMedia and Backflip with support from the University of Westminster, the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Data Art aimed at encouraging artists and technologists to share their skills and produce beautiful and challenging work using data. A lot of the visualisations used data from the BBC and Guardian to highlight key issues in the news, show something about the organsiations or just make something pretty or challenging.

We presented a range of recent projects including our World Events Visualiser and SearchWeb. The projects were very well received and we met some really interesting people including Santiago Ortiz who demonstrated a really powerful data visualisation tool for non-programmers.
