Here's what the data from the NYSE looks like as 3-D art. And in case you were wondering how to make sense of this:

The sphere size corresponds to the stock price, color to change, vibration to relative change, sphere position on spiral to volume, & sound to total percentage change. According to the artist, "The point is not to transmit a particular meaning but rather to express the power of energy concentrated in space information".

Somehow I doubt this is what Warren Buffett sees when he's analyzing the market.
