Artist Jonathan Zawada gathered specific graph data tables, and transformed them into oil on linen paintings after rendering the tables into 3D models. Some of the data tables used by Zawada extrapolate information over time, such as “Marijuana usage among year 12 students vs. CD and Vinyl record sales between 1975 and 2000” or “Value of land per square meter in Second Life vs. Value of land per square foot in Dubai between 2007 and 2009.”

The data collected and used by Zawada results in a “virtual abstraction that mimics a mountainous landscape” after he renders and manipulates the data through a 3D fractal program.

So the next time some what asks you what the hell all this informational data presented in a graph table means…just point to Zawada’s work and say, “that.”
