Information art

Information art (or 'informatism' ) is an emerging field of electronic art that synthesizes computer science, information technology, and more classical forms of art, including performance art, visual art, new media art and conceptual art. Information Art often includes interaction with computers that generate artistic content based on the processing large amounts of data.

Background

Informatism follows on the 1970 exhibition organized by Kynaston McShine called "Information", held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City - a show that formally established conceptual art as a leading tendency in the United States. This tendency then spread widely throughout the world. This conceptual trend followed on the activities of Experiments in Art and Technology known as E.A.T.

Artistic practice

Information art data can be manifest using photographs, census data, micropayments, personal profiles and expressions, video clips, search engine results, digital painting, network signals, and prose.
