Data Visualization - The Value of Process

Date: This event took place live on March 20 2013

Presented by: Scott Murray

Duration: Approximately 60 minutes.

Cost: Free

This webcast talk presented by Scott Murray author of Interactive Data Visualization for the Web, will introduce ideas from conceptual art, connecting them to the daily challenges faced by data visualizers working with code.

The spheres of art and design are quite concerned with process, and the practice of data visualization should be no different. The design process is critical, but so is the process through which the audience interacts with our work, as well as the mapping process — expressed in code — of translating data values into visuals.
