Fact: The more pot high school seniors smoke, the more music they buy. That's just one of the many offbeat sociological observations made by Australian artist Jonathan Zawada in Over Time, a series of oil paintings that recently wrapped its run at Prism Gallery in LA.
A self-described "tech junkie," Zawada collected random bits of data — like the value of land over time in Dubai vs. in Second Life — in graph format, which he then digitally rendered into 3D. The renderings then served as the source images for large-scale landscape paintings painted in bold neon colors.
