Graphics “en plein air”

26Aug08

A few examples of how to bring graphical explanations into the real world. Perhaps this sort of application can communicate to even more people because it is less “nerdy” and more approachable.

The first is called TerraForm and is a short film by Johannes Brückner which simply describes globalization and the challenges it creates for humans. An incredible amount of work. Via Information Aesthetics.

The second is a series of graphical sculptures made by Joshua Callaghan. The one below depicts military spending by nation. What country do you think is on the left? Clue. Via Information Aesthetics.
