The exhibition will be open until 28 February 2016, at Somerset House in London to see the new works of various international artists such as. for example, Ryoji Ikeda, James Bridle or Franco Mattes, amongst others.
“choice of technological innovation is the key to progress in basic sectors such as education, science or culture”
All the artists exhibiting their works have a common goal: To attempt to envision how data have become a fundamental part of our times. Indeed, every day we create 2.5 trillion bytes of data. We all generate date, via mobile devices, sensors, social networks, photographs, digital videos, purchase transactions and even GPS signals. This exhibition shows how it is increasingly easier to store and process a larger quantity of data.
The Banco Sabadell Foundation collaborates with this exhibition to support science and technology, in the words of its president Miquel Molins “it is a project that delves into the data explosion phenomenon, something which over recent years has changed our society and so the choice of technological innovation is the key to progress in basic sectors such as education, science or culture”.
