Antonio Roberts’ artwork focuses on errors and glitches that are generated by digital technology. An underlying theme of his work is open source software, free culture and collaborative practices. Roberts’ work, data.set– which has been created specifically for the exhibition “Thinking Out Loud” at the Open Data Institute, London – investigates what happens when we choose to represent social data beyond the confines of a traditional spreadsheet dataset. Rather than showing informative data from the UK datasets on digital exclusion and adult internet usage that he has mined, Roberts represents its bytes visually. Blocks of colours replace tabular or text-file formats, offering a different perspective.
