The above visualizations are works that were included in the exhibit, "Every Algorithm has Art in It" displayed at the National Academy of Sciences, Cultural Programs, National Academies Keck Center, Washington DC, October 2014 - April 2015.  These compelling visualizations are as informative as they are aesthetically pleasing and showcase the power of lines, forms and colors to convey scientific data in an artistic, powerful, significant, and cogent way.
