Sketchtravel - The original book will be auctioned to benefit an international charity. | Artifact Journals: Documenting the Artistic Process | Scoop.it
Sketchtravel is the name of an artistic experience initiated independently by illustrators Daisuke Tsutsumi (Japan) and Gerald Guerlais (France).

 

THE SKETCHTRAVELis a unique international charity art project.
This red sketchbook was passed from one artist's hand to another like an Olympic torch in an artistic relay through 12 countries over 4 and half years.

This traveling museum contains the personal visions of 71 exceptional illustrators, animators and comic book artists, including artists such as Bill Plympton, James Jean, Rebecca Dautremer, Glen Keane, Frederick Back, and Hayao Miyazaki. Initiated by illustrators Dice Tsutsumi (Japan) and Gerald Guerlais (France), the project will culminate in an auction of the original book in Brussels on October 17, 2011.

 

This website is very different and very creative in design and style. It's worth a visit.

IMAGES: 'On The Road' Gets An Awesome Makeover | Artifact Journals: Documenting the Artistic Process | Scoop.it
I started by making a drawing for every page of "On the Road" in a Moleskine sketchbook, picking images that appealed to me without the burden of trying to tell the story in a linear way.

Storytelling with Big Data: Thoughts on VISUALIZED

Storytelling with Big Data: Thoughts on VISUALIZED | Artifact Journals: Documenting the Artistic Process | Scoop.it
The event certainly delivered on that promise. With a rapid-fire lineup of 32 speakers over two days, things skewed interestingly—but perhaps not surprisingly—towards the experimental. Or perhaps those are the presentations that made the biggest impact on me among several days of maps, network diagrams, dynamic charts and bubble diagrams.

 

On second thought, I should use the word “experiential” instead of “experimental.” It’s a term that came up many times as the presenters emphasized a need to engage with the audience in order to inform them. Cartogram wall sculptures as prompts for storytelling, generative sound sculptures, personalized place-based network jewelry, and sound from scribbles certainly engaged me. But I’m not sure how much they informed me. I can’t deny that these more abstract examples of data visualization do tell stories—as does art, poetry, dance, and music. Inspirational? Most definitely. But several steps away from data journalism, and outside of my world as the art director of information graphics at Scientific American. And yet these are the examples I’m compelled to share.

Is Data Visualization Art?

Is Data Visualization Art? | Artifact Journals: Documenting the Artistic Process | Scoop.it

Data Visualization is driven by data. Its form is often derived from optimizing the efficiency of inputting data (and information about that data) into a human brain. It is a very pragmatic practice, built around numbers and logic.


And yet it is beautiful. It evokes emotions. It can be aesthetically pleasing, or hideous. It communicates complex concepts and provokes thought. It is consumed for enjoyment. Some visualizations even share similarities with poetry.

There are several stages in the life cycle of data visualizations, and while the core of the practice is driven by rational thinking, any number of stages in the process have opportunities for subjective decisions or artistic interpretations...
