Data Driven Light Based Artwork

In this work we produced a light-based artwork that translates live space weather data into a visually pleasing format. Much of the raw data is represented in a format that would be meaningless to a viewer unfamiliar with the study of space weather. In presenting this data as an artistic piece, we increase the time the audience will dedicate to thoroughly and critically examining the data. Through this work, we allow the viewer to engage with the data in a way that they can understand without previous familiarity. We achieved this by using Arduino hardware and software to scrape data from the NOAA livestream and translate it into a more visual experience.
