The DigitalArtNetwork (DAN) evolved through digitally linking diverse artistic projects created by students in different courses. The works themselves serve as nodes in this network.
The artistic concepts and their development are based on an iterative process, which aims to optimise the relationships of the nodes with the network and balance the flow of data. The works receive, transform, and convey data. They are conceived as a requirement for the flows that manifest between the nodes in an abstract mathematical pattern, which wouldn’t be tangible without the transformation process taking place within the nodes.
In the DAN project the aforementioned autoreferential process of data production can be accessed online. The individual projects comprising the DigitalArtNetwork are presented via streaming formats.
