Visualizing Data
Data isn’t all columns of numbers and words, or pages and pages of charts, but also a fun tool to create results-based pieces of art. Fathom Information Design is a company that takes complex data for their clients, and expresses it for them using various software’s. Some of the results are amazing, such as the All Streets (2008) project.
Working with Ben Fry, whose research focuses on combining statistics and data visualization, what All Streets does is combine information, such as all the roads and streets in the United States (240 million to be precise), and instead of presenting the findings as a huge list, present them as a map. 
A map which conveniently takes on the shape of the country, outlining ravines, canyons, parks and mountains, without any use of topography; just the lines of the roads themselves.
Data is an art form all on its own, but with a bit of visualization and some programming, the data results can be used as tools to create its very own piece of art.
