The ability to collect and store data continues to increase, but our ability to understand it remains unchanged. In an attempt to gain better understanding of data, fields such as information visualization, data mining and graphic design are employed, each solving an isolated part of the specific problem, but failing in a broader sense: there are still too many unsolved data visualization problems. As a solution, I seek to bring the individual fields together as part of a single process. I’ll be showing examples of work developed as part of my Ph.D. dissertation at the MIT Media Laboratory, as a postdoc at the Eli & Edythe L. Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard, and now as Director of Seed Visualization and its Phyllotaxis Lab. The work ranges from illustrations of data for magazines and journals to software tools used by geneticists to interactive database applications for Fortune 10 corporations. http://benfry.com/ http://processing.org
