Data Visualization Meetup – Data Physicalization

Edinburgh Data Visualization Meetup 6

Our next Edinburgh DataVis Meetup features:

Data Physicalization

Talks to include work by:
– Uta Hinrichs
– Fearn Bishop
– Evan Morgan
– Bettina Nissen

Data physicalization as a way to encode data in physical shapes, artifacts and experiences. We will introduce the opportunities and benefits of data physicalization for engaging audiences and making data accessible to non specialist and non technical audiences. This session will consist of a couple of lightning talks to introduce the topic and then a hands-on activity where we will make different physicalizations. Through this dynamic activity you will find out more about how to translate data into material forms and how materials may engage people with data in a different sensorial and experiential ways.
