As part of splitting the dataset into 4 separate sections, one of the options we came up with was a daisy chain of people. They would be coloured based on the country/provence in which the data is derived from. They would be placed in a public space in order for people to interact with the artefact.
“Life on the line”
Have cut out paper people and hang them off of a line in an open space. This would represent road deaths in Ireland over a 10 year period. Gather the average over this time and base that on the number of paper people hanging on the line.
Could possibly do the following:
pulling down is easier than pushing up
connect wire to centre of each county – connect wire/thread to stepper motor
gear shafts – using gears to make blocks go higher
-A piece of paper cut out in the shape of a stick man – stick it onto a tooth pick and dot 365 in a garden – memorial piece – data physicalisation embedded in a landscape in Ireland
-Bring data into people landscape – have documentation of it
-Photographic Story – how the piece is made – people conversing
-Series of 4
-Merging different data sets (road deaths over x about of years, road deaths involving children, drink driving etc )
-Art Series – Similar approach – similar style – similar material
-Each person is responsible for a different data set (plot it out) + choose way of representing it
We came across a project similar enough to what we want to do but we are not sure how difficult it would be to execute! This project is able to visualize the changing factors in different regions of Italy and it sizes them based on these numbers. This is done through the use of an arduino.
Now that we have defined what our dataset will be, I started going through a process of mocking up various ways we could visualise different aspects of the data. Below is a compilation slideshow of some of the sketches/ideas.
The ideas are wide and varied enough to be situated in different spaces. For example, some are interactive installation pieces that could be placed within a gallery whereas others could be placed in public spaces.
I think examples (b) & (d) here could also be very useful to our development & design process
