Robot Drawing Machine

Data is all around us, constantly being emitted from various sources both organic and man made. How could we visualise this hidden world that permeates every thing on this planet. This project set out to show the contrasting hidden worlds of data from 2 random locations in London. Various data points such as light, ambient sound, carbon monoxide, electromagnetic fields were collected to understand each of the locations. These inperceptible, abstract data readings are then translated into a simple bar graph that a robot plotter would draw in real time. By watching these machines interpret this data in real-time I hope the viewer can experience a fraction of this constant flow of data that surrounds us all.
