DataVis LA Meetup – August 26: Eyeo Festival Highlights

Eyeo festival highlights

Amelia McNamara

From the festival website, “Eyeo assembles an incredible set of creative coders, data designers and artists, and attendees — expect enthralling talks, unique workshops and interactions with open source instigators and super fascinating practitioners.” I’ll talk about some of the most inspiring talks and projects I saw at Eyeo this year, including work by Santiago Ortiz, Lillian Schwartz, Cod.Act, Kate Crawford and Nicholas Felton. Most of this work can be described best by the term “art,” so come expecting provocations, not prototypes. To learn more about the festival, visit eyeofestival.com

Amelia is a statistics PhD candidate at UCLA. Her research interests include statistics education, statistical computing, and data visualization. She attends events like Eyeo in order to gain inspiration for future work.

    Great presentation Amelia. Thanks for brining to us the artful side of the data, which is rare and hard to come by.
