California as a Design Problem > Projects > D:GP The Center for Design and Geopolitics
"California is D:GP’s object of study, a meta-design problem composed of heterogeneous components and constituents. California is a State whose dynamism is driven by its own divisions. So despite current problems we look to the dynamic, often chaotic history of invention and conflict that has defined California as inspiration for what is follow."

Two talks about data on Env
"Both of these discuss the limits of data visualization and indeed data and indeed knowledge. It’s not hard to find people claiming that we don’t know very much, but these two are experts at figuring out and showing what we know. Skepticism about the power of scatterplots means something serious – is more than sophomoric nihilism – when it comes from them.

I hope these might be news of a fresh wave of data work: analysis and visualization that retains a sense of play, but also admits its responsibility as rhetoric and is more able to expose its own assumptions and omissions. In my head I’ve been calling this data with context, but I think we need something catchier."
