#Data Eye of Wangjing
New media agency Ouchhh is an Istanbul based independent creative agency known for creating dynamic art experiences using digital technology and data to generate imagery. Data Eye of Wangjing is a new public art sculpture that is created using data to visualize various aspects of life in Beijing. Different sets of environmental data such as air quality, CO2 transmissions and city traffic are translated onto the rotating LED panels, using the sculpture as a vehicle to transmit information.
Standing at 4.5 meters tall and comprised of rotating concentric rings, the Data Eye of Wangjing is a permanent site-specific landmark for the Wangjing Laneway, a mixed-use development in Beijing, China. UAP worked with the client from the onset of this project delivering the curatorial vision, design, fabrication and installation.
Ouchhh strives to question the truths behind today’s most accepted beliefs in science, technology, artiﬁcial intelligence, and natural phenomena. Therefore, the Data Eye of Wangjing is not just an iconic landmark but also a data-driven mirror of the city and its inhabitants.Ouchhh
