The Museum of Art and Design: A Visualization
Museums are inherently created to highlight the work of a group of artists whose contribution to the advancement of the media in which they work resulted in not only a piece of reknown but has pushed the boundries of thought and reason. Simply put their artistic merit is "higher" than that of the majority of their peers. But is this the way the general population views these same works, and would the general population namely rank these artists in the same manner as the institution that houses their works? "A MAD Visualization" is an experiment to determine just that - a ranking of works - to better understand how the general public views the art presented to them.
