Second year MGDs were invited to present their data visualization explorations from last spring at the Duke Friday Forum. We presented to a research-based audience to demonstrate the potential of graphic design and creative data visualization.
The projects we presented explored data visualizations of disparate data sets as a way of identifying correlations between the data sets. While the projects explored unsubstantiated conclusions, they demonstrate the potential of visualization as a means to discover new relationships in the data. In addition, they opened a discussion around designed data visualizations as a means to engage non-research audiences in understanding research.
