Datengraphie (english: datagrafy) is a new form of data (information) art developed by the german computer-scientist-erred-artist Jörg Jung.


Datagrafy acts on the border between technology and art, ratio and emotion, data and aesthetics – in several ways.
It connects, mediates and solves. It is contemporary digital art, but is more consequent in working on the “naked truth” of data as seen yet.

It is data art and takes place on several levels, where the last/first level is only visible while being close. Datagrafy defines iconografy of data.

Datagrafy utilizes arbitrary data as source material. But it also uses (raw) data as direct drawing material. And that’s the point.

– Why Bitcoin, why DeLouvois ?

The second question is an easy one: Matthieu ( DeLouvois’ founder ) approached Jörg, he liked his attitude and his project. Done.

But there is more in terms of a connection. Because : What is bitcoin ?

Bitcoin is a non-trivial system operating on an advanced distributed data structure. Why not use the blockchain is input to datagrafy ? The result is the (still ongoing) work on the series “krypto”:

 

 

The sample video is about the Datagrafy krypto: Hauptbuch/->12 (roughly: crypto: Ledger/->12).

– What’s available here on DeLouvois ?

Datagrafies are digital at core – they are artefacts (or plain output) of a self-developed software called (surprise) datengraphie (as the time of writing in v1.7.0.0/qu).
Datagrafies are meant for printing and be placed on a wall – to be enjoyed as art.

So, Datagrafies may come in full-size original as single piece. That may be huge. For the mentioned example above original measurements are: 4.74m * 4.72m.
They may also come as scaled-down copies. Either as limited edition or open edition.

As of now DeLouvois offers you limited edition scaled-down digital copies of selected Datagrafies for the purpose of you printing it for your own usage.
So you basically will be provided a download link over a secured channel if you decide to purchase.

The exemplars offered here are visibly and invisibly signed (inlcuding the exemplar number) and you get a written certificate of authenticity. If you like you may have a dedication or arbitrary text included on your exemplar.

If you feel you are interested in more or originals: Feel free to contact Matthieu, he will happily receive enquiries. Thanx, Matt !

    The Datagrafy “krypto: Hauptbuch/15” (roughly: crypto: Ledger/15) is based on all blocks of the bitcoin blockchain in 2015.

    So this is an artistic treatment of one of the currently most relevant “forms” of data.

    The treatment is structurally similar to “datagrafy: biblioism” (cf.: http://www.datagrafy.com/#bib) and gets its colors from the cumulated transaction values of the corresponding blocks.
