Thorp has created all kinds of data artwork including a piece at the 9/11 memorial in New York. It`s still unclear what shape the art will take here.
"I imagine it will be a combination between data that already lives in St. Louis, so city data, and then data that we will actually make for the project." said Data Artist Jer Thorp. "We do sculpture, we do large format projections on buildings, we also do performance."
The 15 month project is being funded with a $75,000 dollar grant through the Regional Arts Commission.
