Data has become one of the most valuable resources in the digital age. Indeed, it is estimated that more than 5 billion users of the Internet (https://www.internetlivestats.com/) generate more than 59 trillion gigabytes of information (source from the State of Data column by Gil Press in Forbes magazine). However, while we all participate in creating data, it is not straightforward how our information is being processed, stored, and exchanged across the platforms, services, software, and devices that we use.

The 8th SPARKS session is interested in discussing innovative manners in which artists, technologists, researchers, and practitioners, express their visions of the impact and effects of data in art and science. With this goal in mind, the primary materials that the session seeks to highlight are visual media and visual methods that help, amplify, or challenge our visual perception and human interpretation.
