Artisanal Data – What do we get when we apply the vernacular of data visualization to small, incomplete, totally unscientific data sets? What happens when we stop looking for patterns and start looking for fragments? What happens when we get literary? And what am I even talking about? Looking at work like Stefanie Posavec's First Chapters, Quantified Breakup, or my own Dot, we can see an approach to tiny data that reflects the experiences of our world in a way as tiny and revealing as slim, modern novels, but is fundamentally contemporary.
