Eyeo Festival talks online

Posted to Visualization  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

The Eyeo Festival, hosted over at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, seems to have grown quickly into the event of the year for data artists and designers. Scan the speaker list, and you’ll recognize a lot of names, like Cox, Felton, Thorp, and Fry. This year’s event has come and gone, but the talks have been trickling online. You should watch them.

Start with the keynote by Paola Antonelli, a senior curator in the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art, jump to the five-minute ignite talks, and then slowly take in the rest.
