Drawing Map Of Canada

I have drawn this map of Canada where I wanted to visualize different income groups and their geographical distribution. Data sketching is quite fun but very time consuming

Soundwave Bracelet

  September 22 I converted a song (Memory by Com Truise) into a wearable bracelet. Interestingly, the sound waves hide the data they represent, keeping the song you’re wearing private in a pubic space.  


source A funny comic by famous web-comic: xkcd. I thought this was an interesting recursive look at visualization. It’s a visualization that visualizes itself!

Papa Bless

  Source An interesting graph because it doesn’t represent the actual location of every  pizza place across the U.S.A. The author actually divided country into 20mile x 20mile cross-sections and coloured it according to whichever pizza place was closest to… Continue Reading →

Three for One

Source One thing I have always liked about compilers is the brute power of the representations combined with the simplistic display of it. The generation of one of these can be difficult due to having to reduce states and check… Continue Reading →

in the eye of the beholder… or something like that

September 22, 2017   Always been interested in the shape and colour of ALL eyes.  Not only do I see it as some “gateway into the soul” – I also see it as a journal of our history, our life. … Continue Reading →

Icelandic Saga Map

  The Icelandic Saga Map project is led by Emily Lethbridge of the Miðaldastofa (Centre for Medieval Studies) at Háskóli Íslands (University of Iceland). It’s a visualization of Íslendingasögur (Icelandic Sagas) geographically and chronologically. Granted it’s almost entirely in Icelandic, but I still like the… Continue Reading →

Graf Scene.

September 20, 2017 I have always been a fan of the graf. world.  A simple can of paint – as the tool to express so many different things.  I’m not talking about the simple tags or throwups you see plastered… Continue Reading →

Lasers, and lights, oh my.

September 19, 2017 Laser electric!  That’s kind of the idea that came to mind when I first came across this wall paper.  It reminds me of wild NASA pictures with modern spins on them.  The variation in intensity could be… Continue Reading →


September 18, 2017 Smoke :  This image of smoke on a tinted white background – while not symbolic of any data in this instance, to me would be an interesting way of portraying information.  The transparency of the smoke itself… Continue Reading →


September 17, 2017 This vinyl image which has been taken using a flash – has info vis written all over it!

While I was working on an abstracted map of the US, I came across this image of folks dancing in the water.

Conversation Clock

Conversation Clock: Visualizing audio patterns in co-located groups, Tony Bergstrom, Karrie Karahalios (IEEE 2007) As I was looking for existing visualizations of conversations I found this. This is a visualization of audio data meant to provide live feedback of verbal communications. Perhaps I… Continue Reading →

Max daily temps

I saw this on /r/dataisbeautiful – I like the way it shows a range of values, in “lanes” corresponding to a month.The data is aggregated over 66 years, but still shows patterns, extremes, and norms. via https://www.reddit.com/r/dataisbeautiful/comments/71r4gj/max_daily_temperatures_in_mountain_view_ca/
