DISPLCR – Data Sculptures


[Blender 001 Series – 2015] – Art Basel


Boiler Cooperation, a creative agency in Italy, created together with DJ Davide Squillace a format for cross-over events, consisting of a music performance, known as “Blender.”


Frederik De Wilde created multiple sculptural artworks with the material (i.e. sounds, images, video and other data) provided by the Boiler Cooperation captured and recorded during Davide’s gigs. The artist developed custom code and software to translate all data into a 3d geometry. The result is an artistic data visualisation rendered in the form of an artwork. The 3d model was 3d printed at Materialise nv in Leuven, Belgium.


The artworks were displayed during Art Basel 2015.
