Martin Wattenberg is a researcher at IBM whose work focuses on visual 
explorations of culturally significant data. His algorithmic approach is 
informed by his background in mathematics. Wattenberg is equally known 
for his scientific and applied work in the field of information 
visualization, and for his information-based digital artwork. In his 
work, the mathematical underpinnings of a computer program are not 
simply tools used to create art; they are the core of the artworks 
themselves. Technology Review recently named him "one of the world's 100 
top young innovators."

Wattenberg's artwork has been exhibited at The London Institute of 
Contemporary Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, Ars Electronica, 
The New Museum, and at galleries and festivals internationally. 
Commissions include The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Smithsonian 
National Museum of American History, The NASA Art Program, Ars 
Electronica, New Radio and Performing Arts, and The Walker Art Center.

His projects have been honored by the Columbia Journalism School Online 
Journalism Award and the National Magazine Award (with SmartMoney.com), 
the ID Magazine Interactive Media Design Review, the IDSA Industrial 
Design Excellence Award, and the Graz Biennale of Media and Architecture 
(with Marek Walczak).

Wattenberg received his Ph.D. in mathematics from U.C. Berkeley, M.S. 
from Stanford University, and A.B. from Brown University.

WHERE: Art Interactive, 130 Bishop Allen Drive, at the corner of 
Prospect Street, Cambridge.
