Smart Attack: The Space

The Space, a platform aimed at discovering the best emerging digital artistic talent around the world, has re-launched with participation from internationally acclaimed artists Ai Weiwei and Marina Abramović and a weekend hackathon at Tate Modern.

The Space invited over 140 artists and technologists to come together in the Turbine Hall for the 24 hour hackathon, with a brief to 'take any form of data and turn it into art'.

In total 40 projects were created at the hack, with participants accessing a number of unusual data sets from Tate, Open Data Institute, Guardian and Ai Weiwei.

The Space was originally piloted in 2012 and created by the BBC and the Arts Council.
