  ExpoViz 2012
Public exhibition and events, Campus des Cordeliers, Paris

June 2012

Fifty data visualisation projects from around the world were exhibited in Paris at the ExpoViz event in 2012. Leading personalities in the field including Nicholas Felton and David McCandless had work displayed and a series of conferences allowed various data players to share their personal stories and experiences. My 'Life' () from my MA Design major project was featured among them in print and on large interactive displays.

As a continuation of its mission to amplify and unify the global design community, IdN publishes an additional quarterly magazine "IdN Extra". This series of special editions explores particular themes or projects that the bi-monthly IdN magazine has insufficient pages to cover. Issue 7 contains the work of 44 international information designers, with work from my own MA Design project, including my Weight Fluctuations piece () on the cover.
