MOME Open Data Storytelling Summer University will take place between 1 and 5 August with workshops by award-winning Italian information designer and lecturer Tiziana Alocci, and Nicholas Masterton of the world-famous Forensic Architecture research group. Offered by the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in English language, it is for everyone who would like to take their data visualisation knowledge to the next level.

Sciences advancing data literacy are among the fastest developing branches today, with data visualisation having a particularly prominent role. There are few areas with similarly strong interdisciplinarity, because data visualisation is not only an applied science but also a branch of art. The more clearly correlations can be visualised, the more valuable the data. It is no coincidence therefore that data visualisation plays a vital part in network research, investigative journalism, social media, UX Design, finance, business and HR, engineering and arts.  

The diversity of its application is illustrated by the fact that MOME Open’s English-language summer university will feature world-famous lecturers from two very distant fields. Their workshops will explore the subjects of data visualisation and data storytelling in a completely different and novel approach, and present various means of making data comprehensible and perceptible to audiences. While Tiziana Alocci’s workshop will focus on producing data-driven outputs by visualising data linked to sounds, Nicholas Masterton will show how to use footage of a place or object to generate a 3D model using a unique image processing technique. “The participants will explore different mediums, new techniques, and the foundations of information design and its history. They will use data from audio files as creative material to convey new meanings and arise emotions from stories and current phenomenon”, said Tiziana Alocci to describe her workshop. Her works combine spatial and architectural analysis, open source code research, digital modelling and document research. 

MOME Open’s Storytelling with Data’ targets data visualisation professionals who are open to mastering new skills, mindsets and programming languages, such as data visualisation and data art professionals, journalists, creative coders, as well as academics and students in the field of information and data visualisation. The intensive week will feature professional community events in addition to the workshops, such as a meetup with Hungarian data visualisation professionals, and a roundtable discussion about the data visualisation situation and opportunities in the CEE region.  

You can sign up for MOME Open’s Storytelling with Data course by 27 June 2022 using the following link
