This Twitter account celebrates the artistic results of data visualisation gone wrong
When data vis goes wrong, it goes beautifully wrong.
Beautiful charts and data visualisation are part of our web experience these days.
When it goes right they look great and can offer insight into whatever topic is being discussed.
But when it goes wrong it’s beautiful or beautifully funny for a whole set of different reasons, as celebrated by the glorious Twitter account Accidental_aRt.
The hipster tattoo design
It’s like a Magic Eye puzzle
The lost Super Mario level
Describe the beakers
Someone’s been playing with a Spirograph

Can we have a Batman-esque “Pow!”
And a “ka-pow”
Inadvertent Death Star creation happens a lot
This one’s going on the wall
And here’s the forest by the moon
Pie charts, the cubist phase
“I don’t even know”
When data becomes self-aware
