Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in or organising a workshop, seminar, course


Uta Hinrichs will give a hands-on workshop on how to represent data using physical materials. Data physicalization is a way to encode data in form of physical artifacts and experiences. The workshop will provide a brief overview of opportunities and benefits of designing physical artifacts using data for engaging audiences (especially non-specialists) in data explorations and analysis. This will be followed by a hands-on activity where participants are invited to work together in groups and create their own data physicalizations based on provided data sets. Participants will learn how to translate data into material forms and how materials may help engage people with data using in particular tactile senses.
