Data + Art: Science and Art in the Age of Information

Organized by the Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA) and curated by Dan Goods and David Delgado, designers and educators at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Data + Art explores the hidden stories revealed in data through emerging forms of data expression. Featuring work by Jonathan Berger, David Bowen, Jim Bumgardner, Alex Dragalescu, Chris Jordan, Ned Kahn, Aaron Koblin, Greg Niemeyer & Chris Chafe, Seth Ruffins, The Long Now Foundation, and JPL, this exhibition challenges the viewer’s assumptions by exploring the beauty inherent in data and asks them to see complexity in a new light. These interpretations of data will empower the average person to see the invisible, hear the inaudible, and understand the impossibly complex.

This exhibition is supported by the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division, The James Irvine Foundation, The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, Tournament of Roses Foundation, Xerox Foundation, Union Bank of California Foundation, and Michael and Barbara Brickman.
