Paul Higham



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.
