Visualize the invisible (dataflowviz)
Free Network Visible Network is a project that combines different tools and processes to visualize, floating in the space, the interchanged information between users of a network. The people are able to experience in a new exciting way about how colorful virtual objects, representing the digital data, are flying around. These virtual objects will change their shape, size and color in relation with the different characteristics of the information that is circulating in the network.
Why do I blog this? this is something very important to me: the possibility to visualize the dataflows, showing the overlay of information in various environments. This would nicely depicts what we were discussing yesterday at the conference: how a certain place now has different meaning: given that in one place you can be there physically and virtually meeting people on IM, MMORPG or something else, the inherent simultaneity of this situation can be visualized through this sort of project.
So let's start a review about this kind of projects:
- SOUP: the Shapes Of [Un]warped Packages by Alejo Duque and his colleague Lorenz Schori
- Tunneable Cities project by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby
- Invisible topographies by Usman Haque
- The Orb by Restate Media
Any others dataflowviz?
