Paul Higham first became interested in computation and new
media in the early 1970’s. Since then, he has pioneered
several new approaches to sculpture and visualization, which
he calls “Datasculpture”: the coherent 3D representation
of real-time streaming data that includes values and symbols
as grains of data that have been mined from various sources,
including the internet or scanning devices. This data is synthesized
from virtually all aspects of the flow of life, chaotic and
elegant. The resulting topographies of both human and natural
activity are transformed into a tangible sculpture. Scottish-born,
Higham exhibits his work nationally, internationally and virtually.
He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
