An Artist Who Turns Data Into 3-D Displays

An Artist Who Turns Data Into 3-D Displays | Design, creativity and artful thinking | Scoop.it

We’re deep in the midst of a data viz heyday. Infographics are ubiquitous, presenting facts and data sets in straightforward ways that are, by design, easy to understand.

 

Willem Besselink takes a different approach by translating directed sets of information into physical forms. What’s not explicit, however, are the complex stats that inspire each work.

Each new installation is dictated by its own unique guidelines and rules, which themselves are based on a number of dependent variables, including site-specifics, materials, color scheme, and budget. “Setting these up and following them all through the project allows--or forces--me to do what needs to be done,” he says, in part following the lead of “hero” Sol Lewitt’s Sentences on Conceptual Art.

A wonderful way to change the lives of young people, and to bring art to a community that it should have been part of in the first place.  Kudos.

But there's another leading role in the film: the Art Deco design so prominent in the glamorous '20s.
Stacey Petzold's insight:

I am loving the resurgence of all things 1920...and in particular the comback that art deco seems to be making.  It's one of my favorite design eras because of the geometry of it all.  Bring it on!

The Sawdust Art Project that they had in Benque for Good Friday was fun for all.  Check out some of the sawdust murals they came up with.

 

"On Good Friday, many families and friends in Benque Viejo Town work on these colorful saw dust tapestries during the course of the day.  In the Evening there is a large solemn procession called the "Santo Entierro" where 3 adorned floats make their way through the saw dust designed streets."
