Better Nouveau is an independent design label and an innovation project initiated in June 2011 by ToDo, an Italian interaction design studio with a knack for setting up play dates between craft and code.
The six-day workshop, taking place in Torino, Italy, focuses on the visual representation of complex phenomena and large datasets.
“Over six days, youâ€™ll learn to use the visual, node-based approach of NodeBox â€“ an open-source data visualization tool â€“ to create interesting and unique visualizations that evolve and react to varying inputs.
Youâ€™ll study how to capture, prepare, visualize and refine data, gaining insight in dataviz theories to the point youâ€™ll start looking at data in a different way. By learning about the history of data visualization, youâ€™ll discover how to create your own new and interesting designs for the future.
The final project will consist in a poster visualizing the data relating to a specified subject (we are currently selecting interesting datasets to be used during the week).”
