I decided to focus on my friend Sharon’s LookingOutward-03, which focused on the work of David Wicks, who works with data visualization. He quotes, “Making Information Beautiful.” The work she decided to focus on was a map of the US with representation of rainfall and water flow.

“A representation of rainfall vs. water consumption in Winter 2001.”

I thought it was interesting that this beautiful visual representation could translate into data information. Although it does not present any numbers, it still provides a general idea of how the water flows. I also thought it was unique that the artist was able to figure out an algorithm that would draw and create such as piece.
