Marius Watz: Random Numbers
In the project, Random Numbers, Marius Wats, a generative artist, collaborates with Jer Thorp to create a series of visualizations that demonstrates data of random numbers. They described that their project is about “pseudo-random compositions of radial shapes, subtly distorted by a 3D surface that lends the image a strong focal point and sense of movement.”
I think that the randomness of this artwork really adds to the aesthetic of the piece. The artist combines two factors that are usually not juxtaposed together: randomness and data. Data is something that is really not random but by adding randomness to it, the artist demonstrates an aesthetic for the visualization.
