    Abstract

    Design. Reveal. Act.

    Across all disciplines – from the realms of politics and journalism to the fields of science and technology – the visualization of data has become a key part in every process that seeks to gain insight and enable transformation.

    This year, Visualizing Knowledge takes interest in the designers, scientists and journalists who are driving advancement in the fields of data visualization and information design, creating and using visualization in new and unusual ways to reveal issues and challenges through data.

    They are the modern-day heroes that expose hidden truths, make the unspeakable visible, shame manipulators and educate the public. Through their work, they reveal today's challenges with painful clarity, making them impossible to ignore and turning design into a vehicle for change. As media consumers become more aware of the manipulative potentials of data, the demand for honest data visualizations (and people who create them) increases. Visualizing Knowledge seeks to nourish this desire while serving as a platform for exchange and inspiration.
