CODE_n: Data Visualizations in Grande Scale Shown at CeBit 2014

See on Scoop.it - Shotts

I guess that CODE_n [http://kramweisshaar.com], developed by design agency Kram/Weisshaar, is best appreciated when perceived in the flesh, that is at the Hannover Fairgrounds during CeBit 2014 in Hannover, Germany.

CODE_n consists of more than 3.000 square meters (approx. 33,000 ft2) of ink-jet printed textile membranes, stretching more than 260 meters of floor-to-ceiling tera-pixel graphics. The 12.5 terapixel, 90-meter long wall-like canopy titled “Retrospective Trending”, shows over 400 lexical frequency timelines ranging from the years 1800 to 2008, each generated using Google’s Ngram tool. The hundreds of search terms relate to ethnographic themes of politics, economics, engineering, science, technology, mathematics, and philosophy, resulting in the output of historical trajectories of word usage over time.

The 6.2 terapixel “Hydrosphere Hyperwall” is a visualization of the global ocean as dynamic pathways, polychrome swathes of sea climate, data-collecting swarms of mini robots and sea animals, as well as plumes of narrow current systems. NASA’s ECCO2 maps were interwoven with directional arrows that specify wind direction and data vectors that represent buoys, cargo floats, research ships, wave gliders, sea creatures and research stations.

Finally, the 6.6 terapixel “Human Connectome” is a morphological map of the human brain. Consisting of several million multi-coloured fibre bundles and white matter tracts that were captured by diffusion-MRIs, the structural descriptions of the human mind were generated at 40 times the scale of the human body. The 3D map of human neural connections visualizes brain dynamics on an ultra-macro scale as well as the infinitesimal cell-scale.

Aug 19th Back Alley Bikes Progressive Dinner by Bicycle Ride from Hub Detroit on Vimeo.

The Hub of Detroit/Back Alley Bikes had their third Progressive Dinner by Bicycle Ride on 19/Aug/12. What is a Progressive Dinner by Bicycle Ride? It is riding around Detroit and eating food really. This ride had four different stops with food by:
Carlisha & Sicily
The Batata Shop (thebatatashop.com)
Detroit Vegan Soul (detroitvegansoul.com)
Scott & Bobbie Sue

Participants in the ride paid $30 for all the fun. The proceeds from the event raised over $400 for our mechanic-in-training students to attend the 2013 Youth Bike Summit in New York City (recycleabicycle.org/about-us/youth-bike-summit)
