Double Data | Typography + Data Visualization
Open now through May 13, 2017

The rapidly expanding landscape of data visualization encompasses a diverse terrain that can be parsed into three areas of practice—scientific inquiry, visual journalism and artistic practice. While two areas of practice—science and journalism—are firmly established and clearly defined, the third area, artistic practice, spans a diverse visual continuum that is open to a vast array of aesthetic outcomes, from austere functionality to figurative expression.

With a particular focus on the expression of data through the medium of typography, Double Data seeks to explore the artistic and aesthetic possibilities of data-driven form-making. Double Data is drawn from a broad range of subjects—from architecture to linguistics, from pop culture to public policy, from Dr. Seuss to Wikileaks. Some visualizations seek to provide a platform for political discourse, while others search for patterns that have yet to be made visible. Double Data will feature interactive installations, data-driven sculpture, music, poetry and large-scale prints.
