I met milwaukeestat.com at a gallery night event last year. I had too much wine, but we had a great conversation about art and data and our mutual love of each. We made plans to collaborate on something, someday. I was happy to send him a photo in trade for some personal data visualization. He emailed me and asked for a significant personal MKE address. I sent him the address where I was born, on south 35th Street.
I’m still wrapping my head around this project, but I feel deeply touched by the level of personalization in it. That green rectangle was where I was born. The rest of the colors are taken from one of my photos: one that I’m ashamed to admit I don’t remember (and can’t search for because of my dumb titles).
This trade has blown me away. It represents the perfect combination of art and data.
