Google Data Arts Team (DAT)

Google’s Data Arts Team (AKA, “DAT” for short), originally lead by Aaron Koblin, was a specialized group within Google that explored the ongoing dialog between artists and emerging technologies. DAT (located in San Francisco) began as a component of Google Creative Lab (located in New York, itself part of Google’s marketing division), but due to changes in leadership and market pressures was forced to find various new homes within Google; eventually dissolving. Or at least as far as I understand.
