Mărţişoare din mâţişoare



This year I had a (very) little time for my Mărţişoare hobby (making little crafts to be worn at the beginning of spring – Romanian Tradition ) they symbolize the renewal of nature.

Human Traffic – Human Cost

This infographic shows different types of human traffic, or other ways of paying for human life, worldwide, from the ancient times to present.
I’ve chose to design it like a spider web in order to be a metaphor for such a negative network from which once caught is hard to escape.
Made for “The Kantar Information is Beautiful Awards” Knowledge is Beautiful Challenge. Published in the Shortlist.

Clock for Day and Night

A minimalist clock displaying your local hour by showing how much from the Day (AM time – white), or from the Night (PM time – black) has passed.

To view the other hours, move your mouse over it.

The closer you are to the center, the faster time flies – just how we feel time flows at different speeds depending on what we are doing or feeling…

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 :)

Stock Check – the world’s non-renewable resources

My entry for the Information is Beautiful Awards – First Challange, a visualization about the world’s non-renewable resources – how long might they last?

Switch the buttons “Grows” and “doesn’t grow” to view the estimates of years ramaining for these minerals and fuels, if the production continues to grow at the rate it grew in the past 10 years; and what difference would make if we were not going to increase the production.

In the – Country’s Economy vs Meeting your Household Needs – graphs, I showed also the relationships between those answers. This might give us a clue of the relevance of the answers, because those who answered that the economy is much worse but they do better at their household might have a reason not related to the global crises for doing better, or were too subjective.

The part about – Relevant things that people talk about – tries to capture the pulse of the surveyed people about dealing with the household problems and about their quality of life (I chose to treat these to questions together as the answers completed each other in very many cases, the quality of life is also explored further in the graphs below this section). Many answers contained information about more than one issue, therefore they were included in many circles.
The whole graph is not a breakdown of what % of the population thinks or does, it’s actually more similar to a word cloud, it’s an issue cloud. Also, I have included some issues that appeared only few times but I believe some of them are relevant and may give important clues about what the majority talked about, but didn’t mentioned it.

A special case it’s Ukraine, where about 2 thirds mentioned the word “Change” with different attitudes, (from No change, to a change is highly needed, a change is visible) and many more talked about it with other words. Only few said “A change of power” or a “Change of government”, “Justice for the people”, although few, I believe they are very relevant and give “Change” a political meaning besides the economical one.

In order to make the wordclouds about the future, I had grouped together similar words (like change and changing), treated as an expression groups of few words that had a meaning like that, and regarding the answers that were phrases with many words, I had included them in the one word that summed up best the phrase (not necessary written in the phrase, but had the meaning of the phrase). For example, in India, many people told what profession they want to have in future, I grouped them as “profession” so that their plans about careers would show up in the cloud.
