Artist Yousuke Ozawa's "Data Visualization" project explores the way most of us consume art these days: through a laptop or phone screen instead of in person. The art we see is actually a digital copy, sequences of numbers and letters in a computer program that form colors and shapes. Ozawa used a generator to take the raw data of paintings found on Google images and printed and framed them for various exhibitions in Tokyo.

The project sounds simple enough, but the juxtaposition of the data next to the paintings is very interesting and almost makes the unseen process of digitizing images seem beautiful, too.
