exploring information visualization



There is a crazy resemblance to this Shaman and my Emissions project although I never put the two together, that I’ve made these kind of climate change Shaman costumes until yesterday.

Sheila Hicks. Colour scale texture

A piece I finished this year called The Wrestler

I like the mixture of texture and scale

Here is a large painting I finished in September.

Photo by Thibaut Poirier. What I would give to spend a week here.

I like the integration here

The Wintergarden Marble Machine uses 2000 marbles to make music. Listen here: https://youtu.be/IvUU8joBb1Q


  This animated viz starts out in 1900 and the colours are mostly blue. Simple beautiful viz with big impact.

Found this on Twitter posted by an ornithologist. Such a great rhythm here.

More work from Sheila Hicks and in this case it shows how rich work can be even in one colour.

I love how cohesive this design is with big impact

What I looked like on Friday night after sewing for 12 hours.

Langue d’oiseau I, Textile work by Sheila Hicks, reminds me of Rothko

From the NYTimes, a map showing all the incidents along the Dakota pipeline.

A big piece I did last year

This is a recent installation using small screens for the Cannes film fest called EmotiCannes as interactive sculpture.

I am looking at what others have done in terms of wearable visualizations and came across this one using tape. I also like how the subject changes positions and the clarity of the colour/material/pattern.

A very large painting from this year.

The Media Cloud describes today’s media landscape

Carrot seeds as inspiration for viz

David Hockney; incredible colour

Another painting from last year

Looking into different types of masks for my viz while I map the data.

Textile artist Sheila Hicks uses space and colour to convey mass

Love the association with the earth’s crust that the colour and layering is evoking.

I like how you can see intensity and details about the match all in one.

Love the simplicity of this. Although I can’t read it, the use of colour and clothing is very effective.

From Global Forest Watch. When you see the news and then see what is essentially mapping of live data, it’s a very useful visualization for anyone effected.

Really well done viz on employment

A piece from spring ’17

Seismographs are a perfect visualization.

From CAIT, this viz lets users explore Climate Data.

Still from Video

Global Forest Watch: This is a viz of Calgary area with hard Erosion in black as compared to Tree Cover Loss. I would have liked to compare the live fires from the summer around Banff to erosion but the tool… Continue Reading →

Global Forest Watch has created visualizations of watersheds. Here you can see Erosion as compared to Potential Forest Gain.

Global Forest Watch has created visualizations of watersheds. Here you can see live Forest Fires globally, from the last 72 hours as compared to Tree Cover loss from 2001 – 2014.

Global Forest Watch has created visualizations of watersheds. In pink is Tree cover loss from 2001 – 2014.


Taken from a video about an installation by Roman Ondak at the Tate where 90,000 participants have recorded their personal data.

Came across this viz by IOHANNA PANI although there is no explanation of the data. Lots of questions about how this is made.

My viz painting is coming along, and I am interested in how the data creates abstracted form.

This architect, Malkit Shoshan, examines how entire villages and towns are overlooked in maps in areas of conflict.

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

Love the organic nature of this

Looking at how architecture treats maps. I like the design of the grey map with the highlight.

I’m including this photo because sometimes we delete accidents as being without value, but I find that often, they can help the creative process.

Shot of a video installation that speaks about borders and geography between USA and Mexico. Installation is created by three Indigenous artists, Raven Chacon, Cristóbal Martínez, and Kade L. Twist, featured at the Esker Foundation.

Adding green to the area that corresponds to me opening a door handle.

Shot of the dragon’s body at night. Seemed like a giant waste of energy but then we did appreciate all the warmth it generated.

A piece I finished this summer

Real life layering of information as viewed from the LRT.

Cuban beach after Irma. I think the count of these birds made this catastrophe hit home.

This is the beginning of my first viz painting, where I tracked which body movements I used to open doors in one day.
