Ideas – Tangible Data Visualisation #2

paintdrops

Library borrowing activity is represented by real paint drops which fall from the top of the central stairwell. Each drip represents a borrowed or returned library object with its colour corresponding to its dewey decimal colour as mapped by Chris Gaul.

The paint splatters and accumulates on the floor providing a tangible representation of activity accumulating over time.

A discrete perspex barrier stops people from being splashed as they walk past.
