Making With Data will be published by Routledge this week. This beautifully presented book showcases examples of the state of the art in data physicalization, which includes my Chemo Singing Bowl.
How can we give data physical form?
And how might those creations change the ways we experience data and the stories it can tell?
Making with Data: Physical Design and Craft in a Data-Driven World provides a snapshot of the diverse practices contemporary creators are using to produce objects, spaces, and experiences imbued with data. Across 25+ beautifully-illustrated chapters, international artists, designers, and scientists each explain the process of creating a specific data-driven piece—illustrating their practice with candid sketches, photos, and design artifacts from their own studios. Featuring influential voices in computer science, data science, graphic design, art, craft, and architecture, Making with Data is accessible and inspiring for enthusiasts and experts alike.
Making with Data, edited by Samuel Huron, Till Nagel, Lora Oehlberg, Wesley Willett, will be released in the AK Peters Visualization Series at CRC Press / Routledge.
