Dear Data by Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec

What happens when you decide to register manually your daily routines and treat them as visual data?

Well it happens something beautifull, it turns out into amazing drawings.

Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec the artists behind the “Dear data” project created an amazing body of work. Each week they send each other a detailed piece of visual data hand drawn in the form of a postcard.

Week 07 - Week of complains - back side

This is what they say:

“We are two women leading lives that are in parallel with each other, but living them in different places.

We’re both the same age, we’re both only children, and we’ve both left our home countries to travel across the ocean and live in a metropolis of our chosen country.

We also both work with data, using a hand-crafted and illustrative approach to the data visualizations we create.

And most important of all: we both love drawing! With all these similarities, but having met only twice in person, we wanted to get to know each other better; and since data and data visualization is the language that we speak every day for work, we’ve decided to use this process as our mode of communication.”
