The datavis course

For the second year we are performing this MA class in data visualisation. These are the results of a four weeks experiment with visual narratives, learning about "what is" and "how to" design with small and big data. This year we challenged ourselves with the use of opendata, starting from the available dataset from Shanghai Government and the SODA (Shanghai Open Data Apps) initiative, and moving further trying to integrate those data with more wild exploration of numbers and figures. These are the data stories that we have been developing from the very very scratch: by finding topics interesting to be investigated, going in the field and in the dark to browse data, collecting, polishing and creating datasets, and finally giving a visual shape to them, by sketching and coding. All the projects in this exhibition tackle social issues, cultural topics, and try to explore humanities in its variety of forms, expression, and looking at the details. We aimed to offer a view of the city through the data available, integrating the small scale observation (qualitative data) with larger data collection (quantitative data). It has been our way to use design tools, and in particular diagrammatic and mapping languages, to approach, understand, and communicate the complexity of the urban systems and the social networks that we live into. All the projects have been developed starting from original research interests of the students. These visualizations are dense of meanings, they don't have to be seen, they are meant to be read. Take your time.
