I have this cursory idea that Anish Kapoor’s ‘Cloud Gate’ is the most photographed public work of art in the world. The sculpture marks an important shift from art reflecting society, to absorbing it through technology. I am interested in the data that this object creates. I aggregated this data over a year, through monitoring its online activity on Instagram; presenting the results in live charts and an animated GIF.
