Christian Marc Schmidt is a designer with a focus on interaction design and the dynamic display of quantitative information. In this talk, Christian will present a point of view on data visualization as an emerging mainstream discipline, and how data visualization principles are relevant for the design of interfaces to navigate large and dynamic sets of data. He will talk about how these principles have informed a range of design projects he has worked on, from the One Laptop Per Child user interface, to sited media for the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, to exploratory visualizations of social data in a city context.
