FRIDAY 27 - AFTERNOON

LIGHT AND DATA: A JOURNEY THROUGH THE NEW AESTHETICS OF INFORMATION
ArtFutura is dedicating its first afternoon to the work of artists, scientists and designers who are developing new and innovative ways of visualizing information and giving it meaning. Whether it is on the Web, in multimedia interfaces, designing spaces or parts of the city, we are moving towards a new form of data aesthetics.

18:00 hours / Room MAC
Andrew Vande Moere, Information Aesthetics (AUS)
“Forms follow Data: An introduction to the art of data visualization”
http://www.infosthetics.com/
Andrew Vande Moere is the editor of Information Aesthetics, the outstanding weblog dedicated to exploring the art and science of the dynamic representation of information. In his blog, Andrew shows and analyses artistic projects of design and investigation based on the exploration in real time of large databases and the communication, by means of innovative interfaces, of the meaningful patterns hidden within their interiors.
Information Aesthetics offers an in-depth look into the exciting world of data landscapes, a discipline that having seduced artists and scientists promises too radically change our user experience in the area of information.

Jan Edler, realities:united (GER)
“Mediarchitecture”
http://www.realities-united.de/
The German studio realities:united have specialized in the development of architectural projects that integrate the dynamic flows of information in an urban landscape. They have a vision of a changing architecture in which the buildings do not remain static and unchangeable for years, but in which they constantly transform their appearance by means of integrated visualization systems. Their most well-known interventions are their “mediafaçades” such as BLIX (Graz, Kusthaus) and SPOTS (Berlin, Postdamer Platz), interventions which transform the entire façade of a building into a data screen that reflects the activity of the interior of the building and its surroundings.

United Visual Artists (GB)
“Light Flows: UVA”
http://www.uva.co.uk
The collective of British designers and programmers UVA (United Visual Artists) have become recognized as one of the most outstanding groups in the international digital scene over the last few years. Well known by the public at large for their work designing impacting light and information shows for U2, Massive Attack and other giants of the musical industry, UVA have also put their name to their own installations, interior design, video clips and an original live show that visitors to ArtFutura will be able to see for the first time in Spain. Their work uses lighting and visualization technologies along with software of their own development to create spaces that mutate in response to the evolution of data flows.
