Stefanie Posavec - First Chapters

Stefanie Posavec is an artist based in London who makes data visualisations. Here she explains how she goes about collating and collecting the data she will visualise. 

"I spend lots of time reading and rereading text and counting words or counting numbers or just going through a subject matter repeatedly until I have all the data in a notebook, and then I use that data to create my graphics. By reading and rereading these texts, I’m able to understand more about a specific text or a specific subject matter than I would otherwise, than I would if I wrote a computer program to analyze that text for me.” 

Some examples.
