109 | Feminist Data Visualization with Catherine D’Ignazio

[If you enjoy Data Stories, consider supporting us on Patreon. The show is now fully funded by our listeners!]


We have Catherine D’Ignazio on the show this week to talk about feminist data visualization. Catherine is Assistant Professor of Data Visualization and Civic Media at Emerson College, where she works across art, design, science and research.

On the show Catherine explains how feminist theory can be used as a lens to look at some interesting problems in visualization and data analysis in general. We also talk about the struggle between objectivity and relativism, methods to apply the guidelines proposed by Catherine to data visualization work, and some super interesting projects she has developed over the years.

Enjoy the show!

106 | Data Sculptures with Adrien Segal

In this episode, we have artist and sculptor Adrien Segal on the show to talk about her beautiful, thoughtful, and engaging data sculptures.

Adrien is based in Oakland, California. Her work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums around the world.

On the show, we talk about some her great artwork, including Tidal Datum, which depicts tidal charts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Grewingk Glacier, an ice sculpture depicting “the shape of the terminus of Grewingk Glacier as it has receded over 150 years time.”

We also talk about the process Adrien follows for her sculpture production, her thinking about work in physical versus digital materials, the boundaries between art and science, and how listeners might experiment with their own data sculptures!

Enjoy the show!


A minor correction to the show: It takes 29 days for the moon to go around the Earth, not the Sun.
