Stamen Design founder Eric Rodenbeck discusses the intellectual power of data visualizations especially when data is fuzzy and open to human imagination and interpretation. But he strikes a cautionary note about the vast amount of data available in the cloud that consumes staggering amounts of energy and can leave us “lost in a sea of information.”
This talk was part of the Visualization for Informal Science Education conference held at the Exploratorium, which explored themes of interpretation, narration, broadening participation, applying research to practice, collaboration, and the affordances of technology.
