About Event

If you feel inspired by the visual journalism of the New York Times, winners of the Information is Beautiful awards or the wonderfully crafted graphics of great communicators like Mona Chalabi and Nadieh Bremer, join London’s community for coders, artists, analysts, journalists and designers searching for beauty and clarity in data.

This month we are moving venue and will be hosted by the London College of Communication just across the road from Elephant and Castle tube.

Start - 6.30pm

Talks - 7.15pm

Dea Bankova - Creative coding

Dea is a graphics journalist at Reuters - a job she arrived at after working in machine learning and then finding a more creative outlet in data visualisation during her time as a visiting researcher at the University of Tokyo. She will talk about finding creative expression in code through her personal projects ranging from aesthetically inspired descriptions of mathematics to generative sketches, and give ideas about how you can set off on your own creative coding journey.

Edyta Bogucka - Jane Jacobs in the sky

Edyta is a data visualisation designer and researcher working at Nokia Bell Labs in Cambridge and was previously a researcher in cartography at TUM in Munich. She will share her scientific and artistic processes behind Jane Jacobs in the Sky - a delightful visualisation based on satellite imagery, shortlisted for the Information is Beautiful Awards 2022 and featured in the CityVis 2022 exhibition.

There will be plenty of time to chat too. We want you to come away enabled to bring more creativity next time you are working with data!
