Data Visualization: Communication & Creativity

Data Visualization: Communication & Creativity | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Visual communication skills are alien to some in the research industry, but they needn’t be. Data visualisation can become part of the research process through smart hiring, skills training and expert partnerships.

 

Data visualisation should not be regarded as an end in itself; the real point to data visualisation - the value that it brings to research buyers and suppliers - is as an aid to storytelling. It’s about seeing the patterns in the data that flush out a story and then help you to start telling that story. Only by doing that can you move data off the spreadsheet and out into the real world of consumer behaviour and preferences.

The best analogy and the one used frequently, is with journalism. It’s no surprise either that many great examples of data visualisation come from the publishing and media sectors. Journalists face the same challenge that we do of sifting large amounts of often conflicting data to arrive at a truth or an insight...

Hoon Chung and his 3D printed footwear

Hoon Chung and his 3D printed footwear | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

"For the ‘Prémonitions Sucrées‘ film I pulled from a handful of Fashion Technology graduates at London College of Fashion. One of the most iconic designers was Hoon Chung, with his 3D printed footwear supported by EOS. Selectively chosen, EOS sponsors one or two designers in the MA course to produce a collection with new materials and haptic machinery they have in development."

Solar Sinter solar-powered 3D printer turns sand into glass, renews our faith in higher education (video)

Solar Sinter solar-powered 3D printer turns sand into glass, renews our faith in higher education (video) | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

This design uses only natural sunlight, sand and a large fresnel lens (like a magnifying glass only flat) to melt the sand into natural glass objects. Imagine the potential for housing displaced refugees by simply printing out whole houses using local materials and the sun - no VOCs, no complicated distribution and logistics. Of course, people who live in glass houses still need to be careful of stone throwers...
