Scalable Relations

Works by University of California Digital Arts Research Network (UCDARnet) faculty members (http://www.ucdarnet.org/) The exhibition brings together works that explore digital media's capability of representing a growing amount of data in constantly evolving relations. Addressing a range of issues—from the construction of visual worlds to self-representation and socio-cultural and political issues—the projects in Scalable Relations illustrate the complexities and shifting contexts of today's information society. The projects featured at the Beall Center explore the theme of scalable relations from several angles. One group of works explores patterns, complexity, and "generative algorithmic process"—the computational transformations that are set in motion by code and, with some degree of autonomy, produce a system or artwork—with regard to nature, organic processes, and urban development.
