The project "Form Follows Data" [] (hey, did I not hear that before?) is another data sculpture project based on the exploration of the formal language of personal statistic data embedded in everyday objects.

The data sources used are based on the body, the habits and the environment of the project's author, Iohanna Pani. The data-based objects include a set of plates with a stylized pie chart as a visualization of a blood test, a set of glasses shaped as a column graph to represent the amount of coffee that has been consume every morning for a week, and a "dish set that brings to mind a cake graph". Unfortunately, the current website misses a bit of detailed information to fully appreciate the data mapping and the design rationale behind it.

If you appreciate this work, then also consider In-Formed: Embedding Statistical Data into Everyday Household Objects.





Quite an interesting set. The coffee mugs are the real show stealer. The plates made to resemble pie-charts are also cool. While data interpretation may not be the best purpose to use these for, they can sure be pretty and curious to look at.

Those dishes are awesome. A great example of how data visualization can be aesthetically mind-blowing.
