the potential of data presentation has only recently caught my attention (since my weather project really). i love artists that redefine art by incorporating science & experimenting with technology. artist, coder, hacker, mathematician, sound designer, dj and vj daito manabe, is a great example of this. in his performance piece 'the face visualiser' he converts sounds into electrical impulses that are then transfered via diodes to a person’s facial muscles.

his work came as part of the abandon normal devices festival (manchester 10.2010 - gutted i couldn't go), which explores new cinema and digital culture. other artists' work included the simulation of phantom limbs to vaccum-packing volunteers in a PVC cocoon! (more)
