DensityDesign for TEDx: ideas worth spreading.

On november 2009 Density Design has been invited to take part to the first italian TEDx event on Lake Como. What’s a TEDx event? It’s a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience, as told in the official website.
Our research group was there (represented by Paolo Ciuccarelli) to share thoughts about some of our dearest issues like complexity, visualization, knowledge, information aesthetics.
Here you can experience the presentation we designed for the event.

Complexity is a journey to infinity, and beyond! (© 1995, Buzz Lightyear) therefore the story we decided to tell in Como begins from the universe, and goes through the stars and planets, down to Density-Earth, a great place where statistics become information aesthetics, visualizations reveal ‘big pictures’ and potatoes are in fact big problems to solve.
Seriously, it’s easier if you look at the presentation up here and read the story we’re glad to spread.

If you’d like to watch the official video recording of the evening (and you understand italian), play it below.
For the english-subtitled version, check it out in the next few days.
