Data as Culture - Art that uses data as a material

In 2014 Natasha Caruana fell in love at first sight. Using photography, scientific experiments and educational diagrams, she has created a new work that builds a conversation between the science of ‘coup de foudre’ (love at first sight) and people’s own experiences. The project draws from popular myths and research by neuroscientists biologists and anthropologists. It brings together her multiple strands of research and data through photographic portraits of individuals or couples who have fallen ‘at first sight’; scientific diagrams of the heart and circulation systems; and photographs of locations used for scientific love experiments or re-enactments of real experiments originally set up and described by psychologists.
