Exploring Portraits and Caricatures in Data Visualization

When: Friday, October 26, 2012 at 3:00 pm
Where: DA 5th fl
Speaker: Pedro Miguel Cruz
Sponsor: CCNR Seminar

The presentation will explain several approaches to concrete data visualizations – from the utilitarian perspective of data exploration, to more artistic forms of visual expressions.  The intent is to discuss perspectives in which data visualization can reach broad audiences, by using strong visual metaphors, delivering simplified stories from complex datasets and trying to incorporate ludic natures.
