#SkyArt: illustrations in the sky between buildings

#SkyArt: illustrations in the sky between buildings | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

French illustrator Thomas Lamadieu recently made stops in locations around Germany, Canada, Belgium and France where he shot several aerial views from inside claustrophobic courtyards which he then turned into quirky illustrations.

A Visualization of Global “Brain Drain” in Science Inspired by Abstract Art

A Visualization of Global “Brain Drain” in Science Inspired by Abstract Art | e-Xploration | Scoop.it

Mapping the global flow of scientific talent by way of Mondrian and Kandinsky.


After their wonderful visual timeline of the future based on famous fiction and visual history of the Nobel Prize, Italian information visualization designer Giorgia Lupi and her team at Accurat are back with another exclusive English version of a piece originally designed for La Lettura, the Sunday literary supplement of an Italian newspaper— this time exploring the phenomenon of global “brain drain” in science, with an eye towards understanding the reasons why researchers might choose to leave their countries of origin and pursue careers elsewhere.

luiy's insight:

This week i will be talking about beautiful but also politically-revealing data mapping with Burak Arikan, a New York and Istanbul based artist working with complex networks. Burak runs social, economic, and political issues through an abstract machinery, which generates network maps and algorithmic interfaces and draws up predictions that render inherent power relationships visible, thus discussable. Arikan's software, prints, installations, and performances have been featured in numerous exhibitions internationally. Arikan is the founder of Graph Commons, a platform dedicated to providing "network intelligence" for everyone.

Claude Emond's curator insight, February 18, 2014 9:08 AM

extract from the site introduction:

« It only takes one mutant cell to change the course of human evolution. And every time one internet user shares a good idea, it may exponentially reach the minds of two, four, or perhaps a million people who come across it on their non-linear path. 


It is often said that humans are reluctant to change, yet in less than 20,000 years we have left our mark on every inch of the planet and beyond.
We owe the rapid rise of human civilization (and our ability to screw in a light bulb) to a simple evolutionary modification of our digital extremities known as the opposable thumb. 

Now we have the mouse, which at this very moment puts you just one click away from playing a role in the future of everything. »

Is Data Visualization Art?

Is Data Visualization Art? | e-Xploration | 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...
