Semiconductor: 20Hz

1 November 2011


Data is really dry. Anything that can be put into an impenetrable spreadsheet and turned into an equally incomprehensible graph or bar-chart is usually best left well alone. But Semiconductor think not, in fact they ruddy love the data – so much so in fact that they’ve actively sought out data from the The Canadian Space Agency to utilise in their latest project. 20Hz is an audiovisual maelstrom of an animation that takes raw data from electromagnetic storms and re-interprets it with sound and light, allowing us just a little insight into the weather systems of the cosmos. It’s pretty stunning.
