We have two fantastic speakers lined up and there will be pizza and drinks that have been kindly provided by Jet2.


Speakers

Andy Kirk, Freelance Data Visualisation Specialist

TITLE: The Design of Nothing

SUMMARY: How can we visualise the complex and abstract ideas that emerge from our data-rich world? In this talk Andy Kirk will ask us to think about communicating and reading ‘nothingness’, using this notion to explore some of the key considerations data visualisers face. Andy will look at this topic from three perspectives relating to ‘nothingness’: absence, emptiness and invisibility. Firstly, he will look at the nuances of representing null and zero: What techniques exist for visualising the absence of data compared to the absence of amount. Secondly, he will explore the often-neglected power of emptiness, showing that blank space is a vital design component that sometimes needs to be used with courage. Finally, he will tackle what we can learn from the ‘invisible’: What does it mean to not see things? What can we learn about what is not included? How does what is NOT included shape what IS?


Rhodri Rowlands, Senior Data Visualisation Officer, Jisc

TITLE: TBC


Registration and networking starts at 6pm with the first talk starting at 6:20pm.


We look forward to see you there!
