The second step and perhaps, the most crucial part of creating any data physicalisation is knowing what you want to get across to your audience. You may have a wealth of data at your disposal, but without a coherent narrative to link the data sets together, you’re creating a disjointed physicalisation. The planning of the design and data are crucial. Also, in tune with this is an appropriate spec for the technology and materials to be used . You will need to explore and plan for the design, the data, the technology & the materials to ensure all individual components can come together to produce a convincing and holistic data physicalisation experience. Take a look at our work to map out the Flatholm DAPTEC planning.
