One of my favorite pet subjects: Data Visualization! And now Geoff McGee has made a nice documentary about it and journalism. This from the incredible website: Information Aesthetics.
We are increasingly surrounded by and are drowning in mountains and mountains of data which would necessitate having artists and designers on board for any project involving data, no? SOMEONE needs to make the data coherent and give it a visible/physical representation, no?
This looks and seems pretty techy - a sound wave is made physical through lots of processing and tools.
When the light beam goes over the otherwise abstract bunch of carved bumps, a soundwave form/line drawing becomes visible. There is an odd connection made between the still physical object and changing sounds/music.
