“Driven By Data: Nathalie Miebach on Basket Weaving and Tinkering”  - Q&A with Whitney Dail, August 2012

“Data, Visualization, Poetry and Sculpture” - Recent blog by Dylan Schenker – I really like his take on both Stefanie Posavec and my talks from the Eyeo Festival this summer in Minneapolis. To find the poetry in information without compromising its integrity as a factual thing is extremely hard, because it requires letting go of controlling the outcome of the visualization and allowing it to reveal contradictions that one may not always understand.
