Our first time a piece has been part of an International Film Festival.
This animated infographic shows that clandestine drone attacks carried out in Pakistan by the American military claim almost exclusively innocent victims.

A project we just released yesterday visualizing artists careers for the McKnight Foundation. A project we had a lot fun creating. This is one of the first pieces I would actually call Data Art where we are showing images that are statistically driven, but little information is actually displayed for privacy concerns. It was for an arts foundation, so this made the best sense for a variety of reasons.

In the 30th year of the McKnight Artist Fellowship program, we wanted to see what the artists had been up to. We used data from resumes to create diagrams showing the professional histories of 120 ama...

We recently did some work for Popular Science that compared CDC and Googe Flu trend data from 2003 until recent. The goal was to reveal the season-to-season differences in the behavior of strains of seasonal influenza. This demonstrates the difficulties scientists have in predicting behaviors of flu strains every season. This piece was a real treat to work on and if you look closely, you can see a 3D rendering of some flu viruses in the background we also made :)
Fever Flow Strains of seasonal influenza behave slightly differently season to season and strain to strain. The differences are revealing. The rate of transmission of the 1918 pandemic, which killed 4...

Jon Stewart kicked off Wednesday night's Daily Show going after President Obama (a.k.a. Barry Bombs) for his consistently inconsistent policy on drone strikes and just how much power he should have to authorize them in the first place.

A talk I'm giving this Thursday in Montpellier unveiling an art piece we were commissioned to build using city complaint data similar to the 311 call data for our 311 piece we did for wired.
Wesley Grubbs is the author of Invisible City, with Mladen Balog. Invisible City is a data-visualization of thousands of calls to 311, a toll-free number that lists complaints about everyday life in the city. Grubbs is coming to La Panacée to reveal his new visualization, based on similar data ...

A new project we just launched. I never expected to take on a real estate project. But the client was awesome. Fully trusting and supportive of this approach which really gave us the ability to play and try to fine new ways of exploring this kind of data.

While everyone seems to be throwing compliments on Google Glasses, this pretty much sums up my impression when I first saw the video: http://www.tomscott.com/glasses/
I made the Google Project Glass team a new commercial. I don't think they'll like it.

We just completed some economic visualization work for the Climate Institute showing global carbon index rankings. This was an interesting project due to several key variables we had to take into consideration and I'm hoping to do a write up about our process and some of the decisions that went into this soon.
The Low-Carbon Competitiveness Index [climateinstitute.org.au] designed by Pitch Interactive contrasts the performance of a predefined set of countries along 3 different parameters that relate to the ...
