Turning data of invisible wind patterns in Boston into a poetic data painting, or translating Twitter activitity in San Francisco into a parametric data sculpture, media artist Refik Anadol creates groundbreaking site-specific art works that blend architecture, media art and complex data analysis.

How do smart phones and urban screens change our experience and conceptualizations of space, and how can architecture embrace this? Embedding media arts into architecture, the work of Refik Anadol makes the audience rethink invisible data streams and the experience of architectural space.
