d-fuse - small global

a stylized glimpse into the world's data
data visualizer, moving image designer – sep 2005
A collection of style tests and production runs I completed while at Eyebeam for a multichannel moving image installation, by UK-based artist collective D-Fuse.

"Small Global" juxtaposes visualizations of paired data sets to highlight relationships that often go unnoticed by mass media.
  • An overview of energy consumption by country, one continent at a time. Data were taken from various online sources, and combined with the NASA Earth Light Map to reference population centers.

  • Since its first franchise opening in Des Plains, Illinois, in 1955, McDonalds has expanded to well over 30,000 locations worldwide. This animation chronicles the spread of McDonalds across the globe.The data used for this animation were taken from mcdonalds.com and mcspotlight.org, and were current up to the year 2000.

  • This animation is based on a map in the New State of the World graphic atlas which shows the number of refugees produced by each country. The exiled refugee population of each country is represented by the total number of tiles in the abstracted country border. Darker tiles represent a higher number of refugees that have fled the country.

  • This animation is based on a map in the New State of the World graphic atlas which shows the number of refugees received by each country. Refugee entry is abstracted as an imaginary weight falling on a country. Each asylum granted raises the height of the new homeland, leading gradually to a three-dimensional bar graph, with refugee population on the vertical axis. The higher and darker the country, the more refugees are harbored within.
