Digital Graffiti – Inherit
2017 – Alys Beach
Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is a one-of-a-kind projection art festival where artists from across the globe use the latest digital technologies to project their original works onto the iconic white walls of Alys Beach.
Inherit uses DNA data to create an abstraction of a child inheriting DNA from its mother.
The Cube – Human Connectome II
The Cube brings a select group of international artists to a public display of video art, digital art, animation, and moving images.
Human Connectome II uses data that are the electrical potential of synapses of a brain recorded using fMRI technology.
Klio – CERN Kaleidoscope
Klio is attempting to do for the digital art world what iTunes did for music.
CERN Kaleidoscope uses data from the Large Hadron Collider as it smashes protons into one another at almost the speed of light.
QS15 – Weblogs
2015 San Francisco
The Quantified Self (QS) community organized itself around one key activity: sharing first person reports about our own discoveries using our own data.
Weblogs was displayed in the QS15 art gallery and uses the data generated from the artist’s internet activity.
Generative Art Project – Data Selfies: Looking Inward, Gazing Outward
The show was about humans looking inward to the smallest bacteria and outward to the largest objects in our galaxy.
Data Selfies: Looking Inward, Gazing Outward were created using the DNA, weblogs, tracking, MRIs, blood tests, and sequenced microbiome data from the artist self portrait for the Looking Inward and data from the Pan-STARRS1 telescope pointed at the Milky Way for the Gazing Outward.
Generative Art Project – Brain Brushes
The show allowed children (mostly) to create their own works of art using electronic paintbrushes that were actually videos created by the artist. This is the concept of artwork create by a third person, a collaboration between the artist and the gallery visitor.
The Brain Brushes paintbrushes were created using data from a project that is comparing patient fMRIs with same patient DNA to determine correlations.
East Austin Studio Tour – Flying Critters
The mission of the East Austin Studio Tour is to provide an inclusive and accessible platform for a diverse group of artists to create, exhibit, and discuss their work.
Flying Critters uses DNA data and an algorithm that draws these insect machines.
Electric Church – CERN Large Hadron Collider
The Electric Church is a creative performance space supporting the local visual art and music community.
The Large Hadron Collider at Cern, Switzerland peers into the origins of the universe as it creates exotic elementary particles whose data are used by the artwork CERN Large Hadron Collider.
Artcast – Artcast
Artcast programs are found as a video-on-demand (VOD) option in over 2 million hotel rooms, at 30,000 feet on international airlines, in restaurants around the world and in millions of homes and offices through streaming devices like Apple TV and Roku.
Artcast uses data that are a compilation of DNA from relatives, friends, and strangers.
True Beauty – DNA #3
2018 Stedelijk Museum Breda, The Netherlands
The Stedelijk Museum Breda has been purchasing new digital art together with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. They are building a national and international network of museums, artists and exhibitors.
DNA #3, which was acquired by the museum for the show True Beauty, uses the artist’s DNA data in a self portrait.
Generative Art Project – Representational Abstraction
This exhibition features three artists who transform physics, data, and algorithms via software into abstract generative videos and unique prints.
Representational Abstraction; creating a synthesis of the antithesis the art visually merges the antithetical concepts of realism and abstraction without diluting the integrity of either.
Azetta Global Analytics Summit – LIGO Super Collision
AlphaZetta is the leading global consultancy for independent analytic experts.
LIGO Super Collision uses gravity data from the collision of two supernovae twenty million years ago that created a rip in space/time.
Denver Digerati – V1
Denver Digerati is an abstract/experimental program at the Digital Animation Festival.
V1 is created by writing over some of the photographer’s photo pixels with her DNA data.
Mh is created using the collector’s DNA data.
2017 New York City
GP-Write was commissioned by a group of synthetic biologists who are manipulating DNA in order to solve problems of pollution and disease.
New Worlds 2018
New Worlds 2018 was commissioned by a the New Worlds Institute who is working on a plan for living on the moon first, then other planets.
Seaholm was commissioned by the City of Austin as a study for a possible projection mapping on the Seaholm Towers.
Artcast was created using the DNA data of relatives, friends, and strangers. This commissioned video is ambient, one hour long, and meant to be viewed in one sitting or left running all day on a device like a TV, viewed now and then in passing.
Out of the Digital Inkwell, Part 1 is a self portrait by the artist using data from his DNA, MRI, blood tests, stomach microbiome sequencing, activity and sleep tracking, weblogs, and X-rays. Seen here is the first 15 minutes of this 2 1/2 hour ambient video.
Out of the Digital Inkwell, Part 2 is the second part of a self portrait by the artist using data from his DNA, MRI, blood tests, stomach microbiome sequencing, activity and sleep tracking, weblogs, and X-rays. Seen here is the first 15 minutes of this 2 1/2 hour ambient video.
Weblogs was created using the parsed IP addresses of the pinged websites that were visited by me during a week of internet travels.
LIGO was created using the data from gravity waves collected by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory as it detected the rips in space/time created during a supernovae collision twenty million years ago.
