DATASPEAKS – Visualizing waste to raise awareness
06 OCT 9.30-13.30 pM (GMT+2) As part of the Distributed Design platform, for its 4th year of participation OpenDot is helding a Workshop Series in collaboration with Dotdotdot on the topic of climate change, with the intention at sharing the know-how acquired in the process of developing the installation “Earth Bits – Sensing the Planetary”. “Climate Data” is an invitation that fosters cross-disciplinary practices to look at the sustainability challenges from multiple perspectives and gives tools to understand and develop innovative skills towards a more sustainable future. Registration open! write to firstname.lastname@example.org DATASPEAKS We'll talk about data visualization (dataviz vs. infographics; from data to insight; visual variables; design iterations; etc.) and strategies when approaching a dataset. Participants will learn effective ways to transform data into insights in order to raise awareness about the impact of recycling; they will also get a better understanding on how design choices can affect the perception of information in the final output: from the ERP/Novoverde dataset about recycling plastics, e-waste and batteries, participants will build a series of data visualizations, starting from pen & paper and moving on to computer graphics.
