Whether using Internet-based installations or graphic data visualisations, these artists question the relevance and place of the individual in a technologically wired society in which each of us generates a nearly incomprehensible amount of data on a daily basis. The digital traces we leave behind reflect a world increasingly controlled by data, and the artistic positions presented in this book seek to make those continuous streams of information visible. Through the phenomena of “big data” and “data mining”, critical questions are posed about our ambivalence towards living in such a world. With essays by Orit Halpern, Claudia Mareis, Ramón Reichert, and others.
