About the product

Peter Jellitsch’s Data Drawings are based on what has become an indispensable component of our modern-day (work) life: the Internet and the constant availability of a wireless connection to it. The artist repetitively translates measurable data from Wi-Fi connections in the form of ping, download, and upload speeds into formally complex drawings reminiscent of landscape topographies in pencil and acrylic. He lends form to the invisible digital processes around us and declares them the starting point and necessary basis of his work as an artist. Each Data Drawing is a snapshot and a survey of a specific place at a certain point in time. The numerical values precisely measured with an iPhone app have the appearance of an abstract artistic gesture on the paper with the unmistakable variance of human imprecision. The physical act of drawing is combined with the ubiquitous flows of information that we use and create at the same time: a potentially infinite and never complete creation of value from nothing.
