DVUX Meetup: Aesthetics in Data Visualization

  • CIC Cambridge, Venture Cafe, 5th floor 1 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

What role do aesthetics play in data visualization? How can we take aesthetics too far, effectively obscuring the data? Or conversely, can omitting aesthetic elements make a data visualization less effective?
Irene De La Torre will talk to us about her work in data journalism, and dive into some of these questions.

What to bring:
After the keynote, we will have a roundtable discussion. Please bring with you a data representation that relates to the topic of aesthetics in visualization. We welcome visualizations that exemplify "good" and "bad" use of aesthetics, or that don't use aesthetics at all!
