Laurie Frick

Laurie Frick is a data artist exploring the bumpy future of data captured about us. This is the decade when humans shift from mysterious beings – to big data algorithms, where everything about us will be known. Rather than worry, Frick envisions a time when personal data is a unique glimpse into our hidden personality. Patterns of behavior will become patterned artworks and the mass of data will predict our lives. Using her background in high-technology Frick creates physical works and large scale installations that imagine this completely wired ‘data-selfie’ future. Her insights on consuming data are recently featured on NPR, Atlantic, Wired Magazine; and has been invited to talk at Google, Stanford and TEDx. In 2018 she built permanent data art installations at Facebook, CapitalOne, Texas A&M and Michigan State University. opens in a new window
