“Art and Data: the aesthetic emergence of knowledge”
The Aesthetic Rendering of Knowledge refers to two linked processes: the mediation of images in the processes of inscription of science and the use that artists make of the metaphorical movements of images for the layout of possible new worlds.
In our Postdigital situation, all processes of inscription have converged to the computer. The multidimensional spaces unfolded in the modeling of data to represent the world as a set of attribute-value relations are shaping a new epistemology and aesthetics. Diagrams are changing the way we understand and act in our world and are characterized by their modularity, not only allowing us to model complexity towards the accomplishment of pre-emption and control but also the creation.
