In today's creative economy -- more visual than ever before -- the ability to 'mine data' and make it come alive is increasingly important. Our goal of making real-time analytics available to business and industry ties in perfectly with the participating artists' use of data as art."

In Random Access: Data as Art, curated by Gallery Director Leonie Bradbury, each of the five featured artists uses data as a source to define the visual outcome of the pieces. Joelle Dietrick mixes data regarding foreclosed homes with Sherwin-Williams 2007 Color Forecast paints. Reese Inman uses mapping source imagery of an existing space and remixes it with the visual surface of another to create a visualization of the space between them. George Legrady focuses on aesthetic research through integrating data mapping, data visualization and self-organizing algorithms into interactive art installations. Nathalie Miebach translates scientific data related to astronomy, ecology and meteorology into woven sculptures. Casey Reas illustrates the forms, behaviors, and elements that are the foundation of generative software that combines drawing with generative processes to explore a network.
