A quick overview of my upcoming iPad app "Pennant" which was completed as my senior thesis project for the Master's of Fine Arts in Design and Technology program at Parsons in NYC.
Pennant is an interactive exploration of baseball data that allows users to quickly and accurately recreate and investigate the history of the annual race to be the best team in Major League Baseball.
Abstract/Inspiration for This Project:
The past century has seen a rapid progression in the way we see and experience live sports. As we now find ourselves with access to every live game detail imaginable across a multitude of devices, we must now ask ourselves the question "Where does all of this information go?" Pennant is both an attempt to explore the vast amount of baseball data that has been collected in the last sixty years as well as a study in using interactivity as a means for investigating the extremely large data sets that are becoming increasingly available.
