Imagine how many emails crowd your inbox every day. Now, multiply that by the number of people in the country, and then the world.

That’s a mad amount of data, and we’re not even counting the sheer volume of photographs, text messages, blog posts, songs and videos flying through the Internet every day. It’s unimaginable – almost.

At Big Bang Data – sorry K-pop fans, it’s got nothing to do with the boy band – this staggering amount of data is materialised into large-scale art installations that are beautiful, surprising and somewhat eccentric.

Weekender headed down for a preview, and here are the most noteworthy (and Instagram-worthy) works in the gallery.
