Data Objects

Summer term 2016, FH Potsdam, BA Interfacedesign
Supervisors: Prof. Boris Müller and Fabian Morón Zirfas

The aim of this course was to investigate how abstract data can be transformed into spatial structures. The focus was less on data exploration but rather on the question of how the meaning of the data and the relationship within the data set can be represented as an artefact. The aim was to create objects of a high aesthetic quality, to convey a message and to have a narrative angle. The artefacts should enable an audience to both understand a certain fact and to experience data in a spatial environment. During the class, we have collaborated with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research and the Bertelsmann Foundation.
