Aestheticized Informations

Interactive online installation

Aestheticized Informations is an interactive online project which collects live internet data, including images and texts, about refugees and endangered species. An algorithm in the project's system automatically transforms this data into formal, aesthetic, moving visual images. It is possible to stop the process of data interpretation by touching the leaves of an indoor plant, but only for a couple of seconds.

The project asks what is happening with online documentary information today. How do we understand, consume, and represent this information, especially when the subject matter is disturbing (or upsetting or difficult).

Collaborators: Jurij Podgoršek (programming), Jakob Purg (robotics)

Simulation of the project Aestheticized Informations

This webpage is a simulation of the project. Move the cursor over the green circle to simulate the real action of touching the plant in the original project.
