Discover how the phenomenon of the data explosion has radically transformed our society and culture at ArtScience Museum's latest exhibition 'Big Bang Data'

We all generate data, with our mobile phones, social networks, digital photos, videos, online/mobile transactions and GPS signals. What is new is that it is increasingly easy to store and process these vast quantities of data that detect patterns. This fact is very quickly and completely changing the way decisions are made at all levels.

Focusing on the exponential growth of data in the last five years, it examines the way data is organised, used and interpreted, and the huge questions it poses for governments, business and the individual. 

'Internet Machine' - Timo Arnall

The exhibition comprises a selection of artworks from its first edition in Barcelona, as well as new artworks from the showcase at Somerset House in London.

Together with the exhibition co-curators, Olga Subirós and José Luis de Vicente, both specialising in projects exploring the transformations of the digital age, ArtScience Museum has also specially curated a section of the exhibition to tell the story of Singapore’s unique relationship with data. 

'Data Tron' - Ryoji Ikeda

The exhibition is organised into nine chapters, each seeking to explore the intricate relationship that we share with data, as well as the meaning and implications of datafication for our future.

Artworks on display range from large-scale immersive installations to historical artefacts and contemporary data driven artworks, from leading international artists renowned in this field.
