Was also fascinated by the data visualisation of Stamen Design’s Big Glass Microphone. Have long been interested in how to turn environmental data such as electronic / radio signals and sound / vibration levels into aesthetically appealing visual or audio representations. This is an engaging interactive example of how to do that. The piece visualises fibre optic cables placed in a figure of eight around the Stanford University building. The cables pick up vibrations from the ground above (such as traffic) to create the visualisation.
