THE DATA WE DON’T SEE
| Giorgia Lupi at Eyeo 2018 |
An award winning information designer, Giorgia challenges the impersonality of data, designing engaging visual narratives that re-connect numbers to what they stand for: stories, people, ideas. Through her professional and artistic practice over the years, she’s learned that data not only can describe the objective world, but it can especially grasp and illustrate aspects of our life that we hardly associate with numbers. Presenting her most recent projects and collaborations, she shares how she looks at data as a lens to better understand our human nature, and explore ways to humanize data so it speaks our language. She also provides a look into her ongoing experiments in representing data to evoke empathy and emotions besides providing knowledge and understanding and transform even the driest quantitative analysis into a moment of humanity and poetry. Hear how she’s developed and narrowed the focus of her research and the craft of her practice, and about an endless fascination for all the data we don’t see.
