“Still, if we think such transformations through, it is interesting to realize that what seems like the natural order of research – research question, context, methodology and results – is often quite practically turned on its head with the result presented and experienced right at the beginning and the rest not following after but within it. Data, then, isn’t what is attached to something; it is what performs the exposition, actually. One way of expressing the transposition of practice into research, therefore, is to say that in it, data engagement moves from the background to the foreground becoming the scene in which everything else unfolds. In fact, it may be the artistic engagements with data, where what could be considered departures actually occur.”

Data generated as a material form

Not visualizing the data but witnessing it

Exhausted data

Does not lead to multiple, factual possibilities

But sets the scene in which we can dance with the data

“is an exposition offered in JAR meant to be read as a final, singular product, containing all the necessary information? Or is it better understood as a multiplicity, something that remains open, unfinished and in some ways ‘unstable’? And how would this understanding not only be indicated but experienced as material richness?”
