Every day Twitter users compose more than 500 million tweets, and Instagram users upload more than 58 million photos. Social platforms organize individuals around shared values and common concerns, sometimes with profound effect. Torrents of social data cry out for innovative visual interpretations. We can explore how new ideas gain cultural salience by designing these experiences. In this studio, students of Prof. Noah Paessel transformed social data into visual experiences about people, places, and ideas. The studio syllabus with links to interactive d3 web visualization assignments can be found here.
