theSpleen – The Whitney & Net Art

“…sitting just a few chairs over from Fry was Josh On, who was silent through most of the discussion, making occasional amusing remarks. Like Valence, On’s They Rule engages in illustrating information, however They Rule takes on a proactive, political agenda by mapping the insular world of the wealthy elite. As On states: “They Rule is a political cartoon, a satire that turns data into information… Data should reveal things about people to people.” They Rule allows viewers/users to create “representations of data that are important and pertinent.” The site also invites the user to gather greater information on the distribution of capital from linked web sources.”
