Moritz Stefaner keeps chasing the perfect form for information. In his talk, he will deconstruct some of his recent works, shedding some light on his work process and the rationale behind the design decisions. We will also learn about some of his experiences in how to make a living as a freelance information visualizer, and why a flower garden can be a perfectly fine data visualization of the latest OECD country ranking. Also, he has a lovely German accent.
Jer, Wes and Moritz will discuss the process in visualizing data. They'll share some creative tips, techniques and tools they commonly use to visualize data. This workshop is for anyone interested in a more advanced creative and technical process of visualizing data. Any tools (i.e. Processing) or downloadable source content associated with the class will be posted here beforehand.
How is data visualization changing how we investigate and understand complex issues -- from cities to economies to human behavior. We'll use recent work from the panelists along with other projects at various scales to explore what we can now know through big data and design.
Moderated by Adam Bly with panelists Amanda Cox, Moritz Stefaner and Wes Grubbs.
