Smoke Signals, by Ed Carter and David Cranmer, takes data beyond the confines of the screen to visualise digital interaction. Turning the data of seven arts organisations into a visual and sonic experience, Smoke Signals invokes a physical presence of data streams, with each signal and sound indicating the movements of data within the contemporary online network.

In easy to follow steps, find out how how to log into ArtsAPI, prepare, upload and tag your data, and process your data to get the most out of the tool.

ArtsAPI has been made possible by the contributions of some amazing partners. The arts partners worked with FutureEverything, Swirrl and University of Dundee from the outset to give feedback on the project as it developed. They attended various workshops to input into the design, offered online support, advice and comment when requested and supplied various data sets for us to test the tool.
