On Wednesday 14th June MA Global Media Management hosted its third annual symposium. This year’s theme, connecting to our earlier study visit and guest lecture, was on data visualisation. Three speakers presented their research and the concluded with a roundtable discussion:
- Dr Anna Feigenbaum (Bournemouth): Scraping, Sorting and Storytelling: Dealing with Data in Social Justice Research
- Cath Sleeman (Nesta): Data visualisation in practice
- Cristian Hernández (data scientist): From Open to Public Data: a Citizen Data Science Approach (presentation available here)
There was also a selection of student work from the MA Communication Design programme’s 2016 “Data Physicalisation” exhibition. The project asked students to collect data on the topic of E-Waste and to represent that data in physical form. The brief provides further information and there is an overview of images from the exhibition.
Here are some of the tweets and pictures from the day:
