Humanising Data

As a designer, Stefanie uses data-gathering and data-visualisation as a design process, taking seemingly ‘cold’ data and using it to communicate warm, subjective and often emotional messages. Through her own projects – ranging from interactive installations and physical data visualisations to her (in collaboration with Giorgia Lupi) award-winning personal project and book Dear Data – she will show how in an era of ever-increasing data, a designer can – through channelling their inner 'anorak' – use this data to inform their own practice and output, and begin to view data through a more human-focused lens in the process.
