  • Twitterscapes - Pursuing Art in Data




  • Artist .carolinecblaker. maintains portfolios in both visual arts and web development. As both a painter and a coder, Blaker created DataScapes, a generator that turns Twitter data into images, and keeps track of date and time, users, and tweets included in each image. Blaker’s talk will reveal the process she followed to create DataScapes and will offer a tour of these unique images, as both fine art and recapitulations of Twitter’s ongoing data set. Blaker will also discuss her experience marketing these images as fine art.
