Imagine turning the vast amount of data that the world is generating daily – from emails, selfies, google searches and online purchases – into large-scale immersive art installations. At ArtScience Museum’s latest exhibition – Big Bang Data – visitors will discover the science of data in data driven art realised through large-scale immersive installations, historical artefacts and contemporary artworks.
Hailing from the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB) and Fundación Telefónica in Spain – Big Bang Data is making its Asian premiere at ArtScience Museum on 21 May after travelling across cities in three continents including Barcelona, Madrid, Buenos Aires, London and Santiago. Through the works of artists, designers, journalists and visionaries, the exhibition explores contemporary issues surrounding the big data explosion of the 21st century that is radically transforming society today.
“This show is a timely opportunity to reflect on what the data explosion means to all of us. The exhibition makes the endless oceans of data generated by all of us visible and tangible, and in doing so, demystifies what can seem like an abstract topic.” said Honor Harger, Executive Director of ArtScience Museum.
The exhibition comprises a selection of artworks from its first edition in Barcelona, as well as new artworks from the showcase at Somerset House in London. Together with the exhibition co-curators, Olga Subirós and José Luis de Vicente, both specialising in projects exploring the transformations of the digital age, ArtScience Museum has also specially curated a section of the exhibition to tell the story of Singapore’s unique relationship with data.
