[Book] Data Design. Les données comme materiau de création


David Bihanic (2018) Data Design. Les données comme materiau de création. Gallimards, coll. Alternatives, Paris, 76 pages. Relié integra.

This book is only available in French (at least for now). Translation in English of the book title: Data Design. The Data as a Creative Medium
Book Cover: ©Jan Willem Tulp, Trillions of Trees.

Par certains aspects (pratiques, techniques principalement), la profusion actuelle de données est un problème dont la résolution, manifestement complexe, appelle une contribution et un effort soutenus d’experts de nombreuses sections disciplinaires. Par d’autres côtés et points de vue, ces monceaux de données s’élevant chaque jour un peu plus constituent une véritable fortune dont plusieurs s’accordent à dire qu’elle composera bientôt le ‘lit’, le terreau ou substrat d’une appréhension et compréhension renouvelées du monde contemporain et de ses affairements.

Non loin des scientifiques, des ingénieurs notamment, les designers de données (‘data designers’) entendent prendre leur part du travail. Moins directement préoccupés ou plutôt empêchés par les obstacles techniques, ils se proposent d’avancer en éclaireurs, en explorateurs de ce nouveau monde. Retirant de leurs aventures créatives autant en discernement qu’en acuité sur la valeur qu’il convient d’attacher aux données, ces designers réussissent dès lors à prouver qu’il y a plus souvent lieu de se réjouir de leur foisonnement que de regretter les désagréments et méfaits qu’il nous en coûte.

Ce livre, dont la forme à multiples dépliants encourage la surprise et la déambulation, présente l’extraordinaire diversité des médiums et des pratiques de data design : objets, sculptures, installations, infographies, visualisations interactives, etc. L’ensemble des productions ici rassemblées met en lumière le caractère immatériel des données et leur immanente présence.

“This book features a beautiful exposition of well-crafted digital and tangible data art work. A must for people looking for new visual metaphors to communicate insights and stories from data.”

– Nicolás García Belmonte,
Head of Visualization engineering at Uber.

“Data not seem natural to us but in some ways they actually govern the present world. The main virtue of the David Bihanic’s book is to clearly show that the images, in particular — and other materials produced by design — as well as their poetic action are powerful vectors for a better understanding of our complex and a priori arid world of today. It is beyond any doubt that such approach is essential to allow people following the technological advancements and, in return, to make technologies truly more human.”

– Gilles Babinet,
Entrepreneuriat and Digital Champion (European Commission).

“Today, digital design opens things up to endless possibilities, frightening to some, exhilarating for others. It plays a key role in forging the today’s — and tomorrow’s — world. This book exposes some of its last explorations, creations and inventions at a time of an amazing data flood. The author perfectly demonstrates how design succeeds to transform data in information, information to knowledge, and sometimes in pieces of poetry. All those fascinating topics are intelligently shared in this excellently-illustrated volume.”

– Jean-Louis Fréchin,
Designer and CEO of NoDesign studio.

[Book] New Challenges for Data Design

David Bihanic ed (2015) New Challenges for Data Design. Springer, London, 447 pages. Hardcover.

This book provides a platform for leading Data designers whose vision and creativity help us to anticipate major changes occurring in the Data Design field, and pre-empt the future. Each of them strives to provide new answers to the question, “What challenges await Data Design?” To avoid falling into too narrow a mind-set, each works hard to elucidate the breadth of Data Design today and to demonstrate its widespread application across a variety of business sectors. With end users in mind, designer-contributors bring to light the myriad of purposes for which the field was originally intended, forging the bond even further between Data Design and the aims and intentions of those who contribute to it. The first seven parts of the book outline the scope of Data Design, and presents a line-up of “viewpoints” that highlight this discipline’s main topics, and offers an in-depth look into practices boasting both foresight and imagination. The eighth and final part features a series of interviews with Data designers and artists whose methods embody originality and marked singularity.

As a result, a number of enlightening concepts and bright ideas unfold within the confines of this book to help dispel the thick fog around this new and still relatively unknown discipline. A plethora of equally eye-opening and edifying new terms, words, and key expressions also unfurl. Informing, influencing, and inspiring are just a few of the buzz words belonging to an initiative that is, first and foremost, a creative one, not to mention the possibility to discern the ever-changing and naturally complex nature of today’s datasphere.

Providing an invaluable and cutting-edge resource for design researchers, this work is also intended for students, professionals and practitioners involved in Data Design, Interaction Design, Digital & Media Design, Data & Information Visualization, Computer Science and Engineering.

[Book] Empowering Users through Design (…)


David Bihanic ed (2015) Empowering Users through Design. Interdisciplinary Studies and Combined Approaches for Technological Products and Services. Springer, Cham (Switzerland), 284 pages. Hardcover.

At the crossroads of various disciplines, this collective work examines the possibility of a new end-user “engagement” in ongoing digital/technological products and services development. It provides an overview of recent research specifically focused on the user’s democratic participation and empowerment. It also enables readers to better identify the main opportunities of participatory design, a concept which encourages the blurring of the role between user and designer. This allows people to escape their status as “end-user” and to elevate themselves to the level of creator.

This book explores new avenues for rethinking the processes and practices of corporate innovation in order to cope with current socio-economic and technological changes. In so doing, it aims to help companies renew industrial models that allow them to design and produce new ranges of technological products and services by giving the user an active role in the development process, far beyond the basic role of consumer.

Intended for designers, design researchers and scientists interested in innovation and technology management, this book also provides a valuable resource for professionals involved in technology-based innovation processes.
