We’re rich in data – but the returns are diminishing rapidly, because after a certain point the more information you have, the harder it becomes to extract meaning from it.  Ironically, an excess of information resists analysis and comprehension in much the same way a lack of it does.  As a result, the more that new technology floods our world with complex information, the more we end up calling on a much older field of human endeavor, one that has always been devoted to making complexity comprehensible and extracting meaning from chaos, namely, art.  Particularly the visual arts.
