New Ways of Seeing Data at Marfa Dialogues
Clouds, from Both Sides are presented at the New Ways of Seeing Data exhibition for the Marfa Dialogues in New York City.
“This data visualization exhibit is part of the Marfa Dialogues/NY, a citywide examination of climate change science, environmental activism and artistic practice happening this October and November in New York City. Marfa Dialogues/NY features more than 20 Program Partners, including the IMC Lab + Gallery, and a spectrum of exhibitions, performance, and interdisciplinary discussions at the intersection of the arts and climate change.
Can the things we once thought of as infinite be quantified? If they are not infinite, when will they end?
This collection of works brings together a selection of pieces by established software artists Ursula Endlicher, Ben Fry, Aaron Koblin, Nathalie Miebach, Camille Seaman, and Karolina Sobecka, which attempt to measure the immeasurable: the directed gaze, existence, the sky, power.
Looked at through the lens of climate change, these works make us think about our interaction with the natural world, and whether something that used to seem impassive, impenetrable, and immovable — the globe, the bedrock we stand on, this Earth — is in fact as fragile as a cloud.”
