2010 Global Migration – Double Paper Pie Chart

An interactive/hand-made paper pie chart about The 2010 Global Emigration and Immigration.

How to play: drag the sliders. Go to the end of the sliders to exit and be able to explore another slider, or when you see the >> marks, go there and explore further.

The visualization presents the 2010 global emigration and immigration, by showing the top 30 countries by the number of emigrants/immigrants, and all the rest of the world grouped by geographic regions, and shows where and how many people are migrating for each of these countries/regions.

It is also a work about data visualization in general, as I was exploring the relationships between different type of graphs, and how the information can flow, naturally, from one type of graph to another, in this case, from a flow diagram into 2 pie charts. To emphasize this, I chose to make it in traditional media (paint and paper); Then I had to bring it back into the digital world and program the interaction, so you can see it.

Enjoy exploring :)

The Nuclear Radiation Chart

This “chart” shows the nuclear radiation data, and tries to explain the relationship between the numbers about radiation known to the public (right side of the triangle), from the media, such as 400mSv/hour recorded at Fukushima nuclear plant in 15 March, or 2mSv/year, the background radiation experienced by everyone and the same numbers but compared at the same unit (not per hour/year/instant/lifetime) – this is the radiation rate, which shows how many times more than normal the radiation is (left side of the triangle).
Then, by having the chart arranged in a triangle, with the timeline at the bottom, the chart tries to give a clearer view on this issue.

I made this chart in collaboration with Fabian Fucci, who has explained me this subject, stressed upon the role of the comparison which he made and the challenge of having it shown into 1 piece.

For more information, you can also read an article on visualizing.org which explains very well this chart.

Butterflowers – Martisoare

Butterflowers 'Martisoare' Dress- Detail


Ro: Martisoarele Butterflowers – martisoare hand-made, pictate cu acrylic (rezistent la apa), sub forma de brose, agrafe sau felicitari.

Ma gasiti in Piata Unirii, Cluj-Napoca in perioada 25.02.2011 – 02.03.2011.

Acesti “Butterflowers” sunt o continuare a proiectului meu Butterflowers’ Garden de data asta offline si hand-made.
1 Martie Fericit!

P.S. Ne vedem si in 2012!

EN: “Martisoare” are little hand made crafts made to celebrate the arrival of spring, in Romanian tradition. People give them to one another, especially to kids and women at 1st March.

I find my Butterflowers’ Garden a great symbol of spring and continued the Butterflowers’ Garden project with a series of painted Butterflowers that can be worn as accessories: brooch or clip, and also greeting cards for this occasion. They are painted with acrylic, so they are water proof.

If you are in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, during 25.02.2011 – 02.03.2011, you can find me selling them in Unirii Square, behind the Matei Corvin statue.

Happy 1st Mach!

See you in 2012 too!

The Individual CO2 Paper Pie Chart

Individual CO2 emissions (for USA) vs. how to reduce them.

The pollution data is organized in the shape of letter C, the remaining part, can be expanded to form a circle, O, revealing tips for reducing the CO2 emissions, and facts about the tree’s role in reducing CO2.

The more the O expand, the smaller the C is.

Made on printed colored paper, stitched, glued, then photographed.

Interactive Section Update

Updated the interactive section of my website. It now has more related information or images about the works, and a new design. And it’s on wordpress :).

Below you can view some of my favorite works. Enjoy.

 
 

CSS is beautiful – Illustrations

Some illustrations drown constucted in html/css. They are made from divs, mainly just experiments with border-radius.

Each element in the flower is a div, with position:absolute;. The rainbow is made from 4 divs one inside the other, positioned relative, colors are from border/background/border/background of each div, one inside the other.

Oh, they work in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and latest Opera. In Internet Exlporer – only if you want to see a square flower and a square rainbow.
