PhotoViz explores the intersection of photography, infographics, and data visualization. Combining cutting-edge technology and classic photographic techniques enables us to tell stories and visualize information more powerfully and compactly than ever: a full day of flights all at once, invisible Wi-Fi networks, global trade, intimate psychology, movement, time itself, and more. The concept of PhotoViz invites us to simultaneously reinvent our collective reality and demystify our surroundings. Within this mesmerizing photographic world, striking images reveal the power of tools ranging from long exposure and slit-scan photography to post-processing, collage, and metadata. PhotoViz is a source of inspiration and a crucial resource for designers and photographers alike.

This is the age of data. There are more innovations and more opportunities for interesting work with data than ever before, but there is also an overwhelming amount of quantitative information being published every day. Data visualisation has become big business, because communication is the difference between success and failure, no matter how clever the analysis may have been. The ability to visualize data is now a skill in demand across business, government, NGOs and academia. Data Visualization: Charts, Maps, and Interactive Graphics gives an overview of a wide range of techniques and challenges, while staying accessible to anyone interested in working with and understanding data. Features: Focusses on concepts and ways of thinking about data rather than algebra or computer code. Features 17 short chapters that can be read in one sitting. Includes chapters on big data, statistical and machine learning models, visual perception, high-dimensional data, and maps and geographic data. Contains more than 125 visualizations, most created by the author. Supported by a website with all code for creating the visualizations, further reading, datasets and practical advice on crafting the images. Whether you are a student considering a career in data science, an analyst who wants to learn more about visualization, or the manager of a team working with data, this book will introduce you to a broad range of data visualization methods. Cover image: Landscape of Change uses data about sea level rise, glacier volume decline, increasing global temperatures, and the increasing use of fossil fuels. These data lines compose a landscape shaped by the changing climate, a world in which we are now living. Copyright © Jill Pelto (jillpelto.com).

Designing Cultures of Care brings together an international selection of design researchers who, through a variety of design approaches, are exploring the ways in which design intersects with cultures of care. Unique in its focus and disciplinary diversity, this edited collection develops an expanded discourse on the role and contribution of design to our broader social, cultural and material challenges. Based around a unifying critique of the proposition of care as a theoretical framework for undertaking design research in real world contexts, each chapter presents a case study of design research in action. This book aims to provide readers - both academics and practitioners - with insights into the possibilities and challenges of designing cultures of care. The disciplines represented in this collection include architecture, visual communication, participatory and social design, service design, critical and speculative design interventions and design ethnography. These case studies will provide real world insights that have relevance and value to design students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to researchers at all levels within and outside of the academy.

Design ist ein fester Bestandteil der modernen Welt. Lebens- und Kommunikationsmittel, Räume, Möbel, Kleider... Obwohl so ziemlich alles, was uns im Alltagsleben begegnet, gestaltet ist, sind theoretische Auseinandersetzungen mit dem Thema Gestaltung im deutschsprachigen Raum rar. Dabei gewinnt die Thematik nicht nur an Präsenz, sondern auch an Bedeutung, Verantwortung und Komplexität. Während Design einst vor allem funktionieren musste, soll es heute zusätzlich noch inspirieren, definieren, vermitteln, differenzieren und verbessern. 0"Weil Design die Welt verändert..." trägt mit einer anregenden Sammlung von interdisziplinären Projekt- und Textbeiträgen dazu bei, den gestaltungsspezifischen Diskurs im deutschen Sprachraum zugänglich und verständlich zu machen.
