Double Data: Typography + Data Visualization

About this Event

The data visualization landscape can be parsed into three areas—scientific inquiry, visual journalism and artistic practice. While science and journalism are clearly defined, artistic practice spans a vast visual continuum open to an array of aesthetic outcomes, from austere functionality to figurative expression.

With a focus on the expression of data through the medium of typography, Double Data: Typography + Data Visualization explores the artistic and aesthetic possibilities of data-driven form-making. Double Data is drawn from a broad range of subjects—from architecture to linguistics, from pop culture to public policy, from Dr. Seuss to Wikileaks. Some visualizations seek to provide a platform for political discourse, while others search for patterns that have yet to be made visible.
