Mapping Your Data Doppelgänger #ArtTuesday

Creators has a piece on Professor and Artist Chris Coleman who creates art that explores the relationship with our data and identity:

Like a beachcomber examining the remnants of a sea creature, artist Chris Coleman looks at the impressions that we leave on the internet. Using a combination of fabricated objects and digital processes, his work considers the impact that our actions in the digital world have on our everyday lives. “One of the key, utopic visions was that the internet was where anyone could be anything. Now the internet and the data that drives it has gathered, stored, and commodified everything we do, everything we buy, everyone we are connected to. One could argue that to the majority of the world, and notably to businesses and organizations, our digital presence is ‘who’ we are,” Coleman, who’s an Associate Professor of Emerging Digital Practices at the University of Denver, tells Creators.

“Various algorithms reduce the information to the point where the figure is barely recognizable. The shell is then infused with data, expanding and contracting as it tries to accommodate the flux of information, ever shifting like sand in the desert,” a statement on Coleman’s website explains.

As a professor, Coleman says he’s devoted to imparting the information and ideas that intrigue him. “I teach because I love to share and brainstorm with others. It is part of why I do as much of my work as possible with open-source tools as well as support them.”

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
