Issue 33.1 | Data Culture (Spring 2015)

“Data’s rise and the effects of quantification are profoundly impacting our communities and our lives.”
— Issue 33.1 feature

Data has become an integral part of our culture. Once confined to academia, science and the world of business, we now create and consume large amounts of data in our personal lives through our use of search engines, fitness trackers and social networks. Data is also increasingly shaping our culture, from fine arts and design, to music and performance. What is driving our interest in data? Is it merely the artifact of our infatuation with technology, or could it be the search for a deeper truth? This issue’s feature, “Data Culture,” looks at the ways in which data has infiltrated culture and highlights artists who use data as a subject for critique or as a new method of form generation. Feature editor: Christian Marc Schmidt
