For the 2024 edition of the DFG Photo Calendar, the SFB-TRR 161 contributed an image for the month of July. The images in the calendar were selected from over 60 submissions to the call issued by the DFG. On its twelve calendar sheets, the calendar illustrates in what varied and creative ways the DFG projects approach the topic of storing knowledge.

The SFB-TRR 161 contibution shows that storing knowledge in datasets can not only be useful, but also very aesthetic. By applying different dimensionality reduction techniques to exisiting large datasets, members of project A08 compiled a collage of stunning, artistic images. Their approach to creating artwork with dimensionality reduction was previously also published in the IEEE VIS Arts Program:

Cutura, K. Angerbauer, F. Heyen, N. Hube and M. Sedlmair, "DaRt: Generative Art using Dimensionality Reduction Algorithms," 2021 IEEE VIS Arts Program (VISAP), New Orleans, LA, USA, 2021, pp. 59-72, doi: 10.1109/VISAP52981.2021.00013.

A free online tool for creating art with dimensionality reduction is avaliable on the personal website of SFB-TRR 161 doctoral student René Cutura:
