Vertiginous Data is an integrated, multidisciplinary exhibition reflecting our new media environment and offering artistic insights into the social phenomena brought about by digital and data systems. Bringing together experimental works by rapidly emerging Korean and international contemporary artists, the exhibition examines human-made systems such as dig data, blockchains and artificial intelligence, and the unforeseeable cracks that appear between them. Vertiginous Data is arranged according to three main themes: ‘How contemporary artists use data,’ ‘Democracy and anti-feudalism in digital mechanisms,’ and ‘New ideas using digital mechanisms.’
