Artist Makes Art From Obama’s Surveillance Program

o-QUOTIDIEN-570

Artist Brian House has taken a year’s worth of his own tracking data and turned it into an 11-minute musical album, titled “Quotidian Record.”

According to the Huffington Post,

The vinyl project recounts the movement of House’s body, with every revolution of the record representing one of the 365 days documented. The result — a collection of electronic beats that sounds eerily like a deliberately rhythmic compilation — is a tangible exploration of the many implications of readily available data.

Very interesting and refreshing project, Brian. Keep up the good work!
