The research project Designing universal knowledge was the starting point of our contribution to the exhibition Infodecodata. The exhibition discusses the role of information design and presents historical and new forms of data visualizations.
We designed a 26-meter-long data wall with books and films, mapping the milestones of information design and the most influential information designers. The wall also shows information from a survey where we asked people for their most universal events, persons and images in the history of the world.
Furthermore we designed an infographic presenting the world’s largest databases and an animation describing the development of information visualization and classification through the ages.
The exhibition was shown at the Museum of the Image in Breda (NL) in 2010 and at the Delft University of Technology (NL) in 2012.
