I found Nicholas Felton’s data representation very intriguing. The BikeCycle project gathers cyclists’ data over a year and represents them on screens in MoMa to show patterns of people’s commute and journey. The data is represented through various diagrams and breakdown of information in order to visualize it for easier digestion. The visualization of the bike patterns are lively and constantly changing. I feel that this is a very interesting way to portray Manhattan, a city that never sleeps. The constant buzz of the city is well represented by the ever changing patterns and movement in the visualization of cyclists and bikes.
