Hear data designer Stephanie Posavec speak on her project Dear Data, for which she and Georgia Lupi spent a year exchanging hand-drawn infographics across the globe.
Having met only twice, they got to know each other, their cities and themselves through the data they collected around a particular theme: a week of sounds, a week of phone addiction, a week of urban wildlife… Presenting their fifty-two postcards, along with thoughts and ideas about the data-drawing process, *Dear Data is an invitation to slow down, take stock, and draw – an offline approach that uncovers the warm heart at the centre of our everyday data.
Stefanie Posavec is a data designer whose work focuses on non-traditional representations of data derived from language, literature or scientific topics. Often using a hand-crafted approach, her work has been exhibited at, among others, MoMA in New York or the V&A in London.
