Data Mining: Artists Constructs provides a small, sample window into a newly emerging and rapidly evolving process of data mining, the process of extracting hidden patterns from data. The way, shape, and manner in which artists and designers our appropriating this process creates radically new forms that communicate across disciplinary, social and cultural boundaries. The artists’ visualization/ realization can be any form from 2-D to 3D to aural and/or time based media constructs. Participating artists include Stephen Cartwright, Sean Dack, R. Luke DuBois, Lynn Hershman, Andreas Kratky and Juri Hwang, Golan Levin, Lev Manovich, Mark Napier, and Paul Slocum.
