93 | OddityViz with Valentina D’Efilippo and Miriam Quick

Data Stories

We have designer Valentina D’Efilippo and researcher Miriam Quick on the show to talk about their recent project OddityViz, a series of data visualizations of “Space Oddity,” the famous David Bowie song. Valentina and Miriam deconstructed “Space Oddity” into multiple data sets to capture different aspects of the song: its narrative, rhythm, melody, and lyrics. Then they used each element to create a a unique data visualization piece. They printed the visualizations as a series of posters and laser-carved acrylic black discs. Beautiful! On the show we talk about their background, the process they followed to develop the project, and the events happening around it. Enjoy the show! Data Stories is brought to you by Qlik.
