Information Aesthetics


With the "big data" and "internet of things" explosions currently under way there is a renewed and more urgent emphasis on the efficiency and emotional engagement of data visualisations. One highly enjoyable and thought provoking source of information regarding creative visualisations is the "Information Aesthetics" weblog which was designed and is maintained by Andrew Vande Moere, an Associate Professor at KU Leuven university in Belgium. The weblog explores the symbiotic relationship between creative design and the field of information visualisation by bringing together projects which represent data in original or intriguing ways.
