View last year’s Butterflowers Martisoare.
Why Butterflowers? View the Butterflowers’ Garden.
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.
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.
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 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.
