James and Mark participate in Beautiful Data
Today Mark and I took another trip to Harvard to speak at Beautiful Data, a two week summer institute hosted by metaLAB at Harvard University. The institute is supported by the Getty Foundation and is a workshop to help curators and historians tell stories with open art collections.


We discussed a wide range of projects and processes from Nike to GE to Miles Davis to convey our understanding of audience, authorship and archives as it pertains to storytelling and data visualization. We were able to enjoy most of the morning sessions and engage with some really interesting dialogue from art historians and museum professionals. It was interesting to hear their perspectives on how they work with data.

Thanks to Yanni Loukissas for inviting us. Enjoy the rest of the workshop.
