Database Aesthetics: Art in the Age of Information Overflow

Victoria Vesna
University of Minnesota Press
14.9 × 22.8 × 1.9 cm

Database Aesthetics examines the database as cultural and aesthetic form, explaining how artists have participated in network culture by creating data art. The essays in this collection look at how an aesthetic emerges when artists use the vast amounts of available information as their medium. Here, the ways information is ordered and organized become artistic choices, and artists have an essential role in influencing and critiquing the digitization of daily life.
