DataVis explores a wide range of practices that data artists and designers are using in their works, including interactive dynamic images, sculptures and installations. Computer power now gives artists and designers the ability to display and continually update data as it changes. The works range from screen-based or projected visualizations to sculptures and installations. Ultimately, the artists in this exhibition help us to contemplate the aesthetics and meaning of the ever-increasing, ominipresent data we are bombarded by daily.

Tuesdays & Wednesdays Noon to 5:00 p.m.

The Beall Center received its initial support from the Rockwell Corporation in honor of retired chairman Don Beall and his wife, Joan, the core idea being to merge their lifelong passions – technology, business and the arts – in one place. Today major support is generously provided by the Beall Family Foundation.
