Data Sculptures: A Tactile Approach to Data Visualization
Data sculptures help people explore and understand data in a novel way. Moving beyond pie charts and bar graphs, artists create physical representations of data imbedded in creative ways- as part of jewelry, textiles, and more. This exhibit is curated by IU librarians and includes some examples crafted during a makerspace workshop, as well as photos of pieces featured in museums and books.
You are also welcome to pick up a handout when you visit so that you might try creating a data sculpture for yourself, either at home or with a visit to the Makerspace!
