Using Data to create Art

A Technology & Art Talk for General Public [all] by Rasagy,

Dates: 2014-10-26 - 2014-10-26 Venue: Workshop Room

Abstract

In an age where we are surrounded by data, what are the artists upto? This talk will give an introduction to using data in art, various media & properties that can be leveraged, and a quick primer on Generative Art.

Main Description

A short talk to highlight how data is being used to create generative art. From introducing the idea of a generative system (where an artist lets go of some control on the final artwork) to highlighting various data sources with hand picked examples of projects, the talk would help excite anyone about the various possibilities in Data Art. The talk will include no reference to code, thus keeping it open for everyone to attend.

This talk is an extension of my crisp talk at Fifth Elephant'14 [1] based on the feedback received.

Note to Organizers: This could work well as a primer to @arunasank's hands-on workshop on Processing [2] if scheduled together. I'll be happy to keep it shorter (½ hour long) if needed.
