This landmark exhibition explores the big data explosion of the 21st century, which is radically transforming our society, culture and politics.
The world contains an unimaginably vast amount of digital information which is getting ever bigger ever more quickly. By 2012, it was estimated that 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is created every day. Across the globe, we see and hear more and more stories about the exponential growth of data and its associated advantages and dangers.
Featuring specially commissioned and rarely seen pieces from a variety of international new media artists, including Ryoji Ikeda, James Bridle and Eva and Franco Mattes, this exhibition demystifies data by inviting visitors to look at the ways digital information is produced, organised, used and interpreted, and how it is changing the way we live.
