A data mining and visualization workshop for Interface Design students.

Merz Akademie
Stuttgart, Germany

Marius Watz had previously held a series of Processing workshops in the ID program that aimed to teach young students programming while achieving immediate visual results. I attempted to shift the focus towards data mining techniques and Tufte-style visualization (dub: Statistics 101 for Designers, so they know when and how data-based communication design is lying through graphics).

Picture: Example from class, a particle-and-spring graph visualization of some website's underlying XML structure. Using the traer.physics engine, obviously.
