Data Is ART Poster 2023

Join us for a feature presentation by Refik Anadol, an internationally renowned media artist, director, and pioneer in the aesthetics of machine intelligence. Anadol’s body of work addresses the challenges, and the possibilities, that ubiquitous computing has imposed on humanity, and what it means to be a human in the age of AI. He explores how the perception and experience of time and space are radically changing now that machines dominate our everyday lives. Anadol is intrigued by the ways in which the digital age and machine intelligence allow for a new aesthetic technique to create enriched immersive environments that offer a dynamic perception of space.

Winners of the Data Is Art Competition will be announced in an award ceremony after the presentation with a reception to follow. All finalists are invited to attend. The presentation will take place in the Capital One Hub of the School of Data Science's new building at 1919 Ivy Road. Free parking is available after 5 pm in the Emmet-Ivy Garage.

The Data Is ART Competition is sponsored by the University of Virginia School of Data Science. For questions about the competition and submission guidelines, contact dataisart@virginia.edu
