Manuel Lima
His first book Visual Complexity: Mapping patterns of information has been translated into French, Chinese, and Japanese. His latest The Book of Trees: Visualizing Branches of Knowledge, published in April 2014 by Princeton Architectural Press, covers over 800 years of human culture through the lens of the tree figure, from its entrenched roots in religious medieval exegesis to its contemporary, secular digital themes. With more than twelve years of experience designing digital products, Manuel has worked for Codecademy, Microsoft, Nokia, R/GA, and Kontrapunkt. He holds a BFA in Industrial Design and a MFA in Design & Technology from Parsons School of Design. During the course of his MFA program, Manuel worked for Siemens Corporate Research Center, the American Museum of Moving Image, and Parsons Institute for Information Mapping in research projects for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.

Health InfoScape Health InfoScape from MIT Senseable Cities and GE aims to create new ways of understanding human health in the United States. By analyzing data from over 7.2 million anonymized electronic medical records, taken from across the country, we are seeking to uncover statical relationships between space, geography and health. We often have a tendency to think of illness as an isolated event, but our first analysis details the numerous (sometimes unexpected) associations that exist around any given condition. This gives us new insight as to how closely connected some seemingly un-related health conditions might be. Such results force us to re-examine conventional categories of disease classification, as the boundaries between traditional disease categories are thoroughly blurred. Our initial results are a mix of the expected and the unexpected - simultaneously challenging and reaffirming our preconceptions of health pattern, within individuals and across the US.

Projects – jtnimoy A Lorem Ipsum generator stylized to sound like hipster slang (hipsum or hipster ipsum) has been passed my way a few times in the recent years. Last month for whatever reason, I was looking for a concise dictionary list of all the unique phrases used to randomly generate these strings of pure comedy. I did not find one, but thought it would be fun to try and "reverse-randomize" myself that concise list by analyzing 318 KB of generative gobbledegook.

artforum 2004 Techniques of Today - Bennett Simpson on Bernadette Corporation (Artforum, September 2004) It is the summer of 2001, and the New York--and Paris-based collective known as Bernadette Corporation has temporarily merged with Le Parti Imaginaire, a faction of post-Situationist militants and intellectuals with links to the burgeoning antiglobalization movement. The two groups have their own distinct practices and motivations, but, for the moment, they are united by the idea of making a film, which is to be set in the seaside Italian city of Genoa, amid the protests and stultifying inconclusiveness that will engulf the G8 Summit that July. The film resists knowing what it is or wants to be. And so its makers improvise, exploring what they call the "potential of community based on a radical refusal of political identity." What results is Get Rid of Yourself, an hourlong cine-tract-cum-documentary centering on the experiences and reflections of the so-called Black Bloc.

Or if you're experiencing insomnia, do you tend to put on a few pounds, or more? By combing through 7.2 million of our electronic medical records, we have created a disease network to help illustrate relationships between various conditions and how common those connections are.

Home / Featured • GIScience / GeoFlow Plugin For Excel Will Let Make Spatio-Temporal Visualizations Directly From Excel! Excel is really powerful tool for playing with big data (especially with Power Pivot plugin) however spatial visualization of this data requires going back and forth to GIS software, joining tables or geocoding. Doable but time-consuming. Starting from now Microsoft teases us with a tool that will make it much easier to show data on the map… Last week Microsoft is announced the public preview of project called “Geoflow for Excel”. Essentially GeoFlow is a tool (Excel plugin) for visualizing geospatial and temporal data. It allows users to plot up to 1 million rows of data stored in an Excel workbook, including Excel Data Model or PowerPivot, on a Bing Maps.

Doug McCune - Programmer/Data Artist I’ve been working on a utility called shp2stl that converts geographic data in shapefiles to 3D models, suitable for 3D printing. The code is published as a NodeJS package, available on npm and GitHub. You can control the height of each shape by specifying an attribute of your data to use. Each shape will be placed along the z-axis based on the shape’s value relative to the max range in the data.   superposition concept, direction & music: Ryoji Ikeda in collaboration withperformers: Stephane Garin, Amélie Grouldprogramming, graphics & computer system: Tomonaga Tokuyama, Norimichi Hirakawa, Yoshito Onishioptical devices: Norimichi Hirakawastage manager: Simon MacColltechnical manager: Tomonaga Tokuyamaproduction assistant: Daisuke Sekine production: Ryoji Ikeda Studio (Artistic direction: Emmanuelle de Montgazon, Administration: Yuko Higaki), Quaternaire (Producer and artist management: Sarah Ford, Associate producer: Laurie Uprichard, administration: Kathleen Aleton, Coordination and marketing: Joanna Rieussec), Forma (Artistic Director: David Metcalfe) commissioned by the Festival d’Automne à Paris for the musical partcreated and developed at Parc de La Villette (Paris, FR), YCAM Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media (JP), ZKM (Karlsruhe, DE)
