Crystalized

The Crystallized app by Softlab takes your social relationships and converts them into a tessellated geode type form with a crystaline internal structure. Each external point on the geode represents a friend with the distance from the center defined by the number of mutual friends while the internal structure is defined by the interaction between the two of you. So your ex-girlfriend may be represented by a giant spike on the outside with small crystals inside while your father may be a relatively flat area with big internal spikes. You can then 3D print out your geode to hold your social network in your hands. – Shapeways

Dear Data

Each week we collect and measure a particular type of data about our lives, use this data to make a drawing on a postcard-sized sheet of paper, and then drop the postcard in an English “postbox” (Stefanie) or an American “mailbox” (Giorgia)! Eventually, the postcard arrives at the other person’s address with all the scuff marks of its journey over the ocean: a type of “slow data” transmission. By creating and sending the data visualizations using analogue instead of digital means, we are really just doing what artists have done for ages, which is sketch and try to capture the essence of the life happening around them. However, as we are sketching life in the modern digital age, life also includes everything that is counted, computed, and measured. We are trying to capture the life unfolding around us, but instead we are capturing this life through sketching the hidden patterns found within our data. – Dear Data
