Algorithm

  • Exotopia

    Exotopia is a virtual reality installation where visitors can explore all the known exoplanets — thousands that have been discovered in the last 20 years.

  • Flagscape

    Flagscape is a Virtual Reality artwork that constructs a surreal world of economic exchange between nations, based on United Nations data and explores data-navigation techniques.

  • Strewn Fields

    Strewn Fields is a data-visualization of meteorite impact data etched into stone.

  • Celebrity Asteroid Journeys

    Celebrity Asteroid Journeys uses asteroid orbital data from JPL, estimated spaceship velocities to charts imaginary travels from one asteroid to another as silkscreen prints on wood panels.

  • Hello, World!

    Hello, World! is the first algorithmically-generated artwork sent to space and is a data visualization of the both the population and the carbon footprint of all the major cities on Earth. 

  • Bad Data

    Bad Data” is a series of data-visualizations, which I etched onto aluminum honeycomb panels using a high-pressure water-jet machine. They take the form of static objects, which collapse time into a single viewable space, emphasizing the ruptured surface of the material itself.

  • EquityBot

    EquityBot is a stock-trading algorithm that “invests” in emotions such as anger, joy, disgust and amazement.

  • Water Works

    Water Works is a 3D data visualization and mapping of the water infrastructure of San Francisco.

  • Data Crystals

    Data Crystals are a series of 3D-printed sculptures, which I generate algorithmically from open data sources. These manifest a vision of what data physically looks like — one possibility for 3D data visualization.

  • Playing Duchamp

    Working with the records of his chess matches, I have created a computer program to play chess as if it were Marcel Duchamp.
