English term or phrase:crunched numbers
Ultimately, data recovery may prove to be a futile passion. This is surely the perspective of the millions of people who have tried, as opposed to the happy few who have managed. In contemporary society, data compiling has all the trappings of a passion, albeit a digitized one, and an ever more intrinsic part of regimes of biopolitical control. In a sense, data has become the most all-pervasive – and intangibly invasive – feature of our lives. The proliferation of data-driven practices in the artworld is merely an upshot of the spread of data gathering, display and use in all walks of life; of life become data. But can data, once lost, ever really be recovered? Can it be lured back into the vessel from which it escaped? Data can be covered over, buried beneath heaps of **CRUNCHED NUMBERS**, but it is not obvious that it can be recuperated, if only because data, however reactive, is always a mere snapshot of a constantly morphing ensemble.
