Week 1 Recap and Homework

Today we had class introductions and created some low-fi data visualizations using markers and paper. This was a good exercise to get things going and everyone did a great job finding similar personal data sets and mapping them out.

Homework

Readings
Please read the following and come to class ready to discuss:

Edward Tufte, Visual Display of Quantitative Information, Chapter 4, “Data-Ink and Graphical Redesign”

Christiane Paul, “The Database as System and Cultural Form: Anatomies of Cultural Narratives”

Inspiration
Find two examples of data visualization that you find inspiring, 1 static (print/non interactive) and one dynamic (interactive or motion based). Post links to these and a brief description of both on the blog.
