Hi, thanks for viewing and I hope you find the work interesting!

Extract from www.thegraphisdead.com:

Science has a problem. The graph is dead. Is Art the solution?

Science is necessarily methodical, and methodical can be slow. Like any slow process, the evolution and modernizing of the process is … even slower. And the world is evolving particularly fast where data is concerned. Data processing and storage is increasing exponentially, and the science is falling behind.

So, where does Art come into this?

Often a piece of art will have two effects: the first is an immediate impact, a reaction to what is in front of you and often involves a degree of emotion; the second is a reflective and more carefully sought-out impact, a re-evaluation of the initial impact and perhaps an attempt to understand the motivations of the artist. Data traditionally is displayed to alone have an immediate impact and to give a binary conclusion as to whether a hypothesis is “proven” or “dis-proven”. This is a valuable approach, but with the data being accumulated now, the longer-term more in-depth understanding of the nature of what is being displayed should also be included to give the viewer a deeper, and perhaps truer, understanding of what is being portrayed.

Art has always been ahead of science. Mainly due its unconstrained nature. But where Art has gone Science has eventually followed, as it is temporarily held back by the very necessary rigors of the scientific process. It is also argued that displaying scientific data well can be Art too … if you consider that Art is the communication of an idea or concept in nature. It is not new that Art and Science have a symbiotic relationship. This project aims to explore and promote this relationship.
