The Center for Data Arts is a research lab and creative studio within The New School; we engage data as both subject and medium for artistic expression.
CDA brings the agility and creativity of a working art studio to bear on complex data problems. We produce large-scale media installations, open-source software, original academic research, and multimodal experiences that make intuitive sense of inscrutable data.
Working in collaboration with scientists, humanities scholars, policy makers, and artists, CDA’s work expands the boundaries of data representation, pioneering radical new techniques for transforming complex information into meaningful narrative experiences. We bring these topics to a wider audience through public programs, workshops, exhibitions, and our weekly online publication, Data Matters.
