1. The first screening of its kind — “Arc” is a theatrical program dedicated to the art, creativity and complexity of animated infographics. As its name suggests, the screening lies at the confluence of storytelling and data visualizations — an intersection that will be appeal to interaction designers, journalists, writers, researchers, number-junkies and analysts.

    In a culture now supersaturated with colossal reams of information, it’s all we can do to stay afloat and make sense of it all. With a demand for interpretation, and new tools for doing so, we’re experiencing a fresh breed of visual artists crystallizing this influx of information into beautiful visualizations and stories. No longer traditional craftspeople, these artists are hybrid, interdisciplinary teams composed of designers, motion artists, analysts, strategists and engineers, whose canvas is most frequently the Internet. This program collects the best time-based data visualizations and infographics from the past couple years with a focus on story-driven data. To be followed by a panel with Andrew DeVigal (Second Story, NYTimes), Dino Citaro (Periscopic).

    Sponsored by Second Story Interactive Studios | http://www.secondstory.com

    The program will be presented on February 29th at the HollywoodTheatre.org in Portland, OR.

  2. Move is a technology garment designed by Electricfoxy that guides you toward optimal performance and precision in movement in an ambient, precise, and beautiful way. From daily activities to sports activities to expressive movement, it provides a softer, poetic, and more personal approach to physical performance that helps you eleviate incorrect physical movements, which can lead to chronic pain or even long-term damage. The more precise you can move, the faster you improve your fitness and overall health.

    The Move experience consists of a wearable technology garment and mobile app. The garment includes 4 stretch and bend sensors located in the front, back and sides. Together, they read your body’s position and muscle movement, assess whether it is correct, and provide real-time feedback to correct it through haptic feedback components located in the hips and shoulders. A mobile app allows you to assess, manage and customize your experience.

    In May 2012 I was browsing the Web in search of inspiration for a personal project, and I found this amazing declaration of love in form of an info-graphic written by Drake Martinet. I asked his permission to create an animated version, he liked the idea and this is what came out of our collaboration.

    The project was an unexpected viral success; it has been viewed more than one million times.
