One of five video's I made during my internship at Onesize. They were used in a Dutch documentary called Quants: The Alchemists of Wall Street. The description from Onesize:
"When the VPRO, a dutch public broadcaster, was in process of filming a documentary about the current world economy (economic crisis) for a show called "Tegenlicht" (Backlight), director Marije Meerman headed to Onesize and gave us the creative freedom to "spice up" her documentary about Quants. We provided her a set of abstract animations that could help understand how a Quant thinks and how they work. The abstractness of the direction was deliberatly kept abstract and not explanatory, because only few people really understand the way Quants work and think."
Dataveyes is a start-up focused on interactive data visualization.
Data visualization turns large volumes of raw data into a meaningful piece. It creates a visual, esthetic and kinetic interaction, which directly reaches out to the user's intelligence.
At Dataveyes, we want to create a new visual grammar, a new way of telling stories with datas. We think this appears as necessary, for complex information is better memorized by the human brain through a visual form than words could ever be.
The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.
