We all are bathed in data

Like it or not, we know it, even if we ignore it (or choose to ignore) for most of the time: data are everywhere around us, carried by waves in which we all are constantly immersed. Nowadays architects and designers have the problem to manage these data and give them a form. My question, as a visual designer, is about the possibility to give visible form to the growing complexity of this ‘data-sphere’ or ‘hertzian-space‘, in order to produce a shareable sense, and thus shareable information. The research of Christopher Warnow in the field of data visualization is very interesting in this sense. I was impressed in particular by his project of immaterial-data visualization in a tridimensional space. New and interesting fields are opening to designers, in which to discover new forms of narratives between space and data.
