Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic Creates One Of The Largest Continuous Paintings In Miami - Huffington Post

Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic Creates One Of The Largest Continuous Paintings In Miami - Huffington Post | Images in 21st Century Communication | Scoop.it

Art Basel Miami Beach doesn't exactly portray the best picture of the contemporary art world. Parts of the week-long bacchanal are excessive and frivolous at best, tone deaf at worst.


One artist devoted to bringing the soul to Art Basel season is Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic, an artist and contemporary calligrapher that brings the age-old art form into the digital age. This year, Mestrovic is bringing a massive multimedia installation to the art event, in which viewers can walk through the entire fair's largest continuous painting on view, made from hundreds of feet of Japanese synthetic paper.

Seeing Color Through Infographics and Data Visualizations

Seeing Color Through Infographics and Data Visualizations | Images in 21st Century Communication | Scoop.it

Color is a crucial part of our visual experience.

It indicates many things in our lives, from the ripeness of a banana, to how someone is feeling, to which subway line we should be on.


Not everyone sees colors the same way, and colors have drastically different meanings in different cultures, but one thing we all have in common: color is important. These visualizations all show us different things about colors.


Visit the original article for over a dozen infographics and links related to color psychology, trends and various uses and applications.

C'est une tendance de fond : la représentation graphique des données, éléments clés de l'entreprise, des compétences ou des valeurs... Mais que faire lorsqu'on manque de ressources (pas de graphiste/infographiste) en interne ou en externe ? Les 10 outils présentés sont intéressants, souvent gratuit et le post comprend en plus des conseils pour conceptualiser son infographie, étape indispensable avant même de passer à la réalisation.

New research & maps provide a detailed look at how the brain organizes visual information

New research & maps provide a detailed look at how the brain organizes visual information | Images in 21st Century Communication | Scoop.it

How does our brain organize the visual information that our eyes capture? Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, used computational models of brain imaging data to answer this question and arrived at what they call “continuous semantic space” – a notion which serves as the basis for the first interactive maps showing how the brain categorizes what we see.The data on which the maps are based was collected while the subjects watched movie clips. Brain activity was recorded via functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), a type of MRI that measures brain activity by detecting related changes in blood flow. In order to find the correlations in the data collected, the researchers used a type of analysis known as regularized linear regression...

Visual Storytelling: A New Series from Column Five

Visual Storytelling: A New Series from Column Five | Images in 21st Century Communication | Scoop.it
Visual thinking can be applied to anything. The way we think about things visually is a matter of perspective. And perspective is the source of all great storytelling.

With our new Visual Storytelling series, we use information design and data visualization to bring a new perspective to the stories of everyday life. Some pieces will be serious, some humorous, but the aim is to provide a new way of telling stories that we can all relate to...
