The two projects I find interesting are both from data visualization practitioners. Phantom Terrains by Stefanie Posavec is an audio interface which communicates the silent wireless signals that are in London, where they collected the data from. The goal was to convert the characteristics of the invisible wireless data into sound. People will be able to hear the changes in the landscape of sound around them. I am less interested in what the experience the soundtrack creates. But the visualization that the project created is very interesting. It conveys the information while also visually attracting.
The second project that I am interested in is Unnumbered Spark by Aaron Koblin. This is a sculpture or building size installation that allows the audience to control the projection on the soft fabric. This project is more like a motivation for me. Allow me to see what data visualization can possibly become.
