HIDA Corporate Images
generative graphics from scientific data
Real scientific datasets – from earthquakes in Chile to neuronic signals in human brains – are translated into computer generated, aesthetically loaded visuals for HIDA's corporate communication.

THE STORYHIDA on re:publica
E. Coli growth rates
Code & translation
14 datasets are the basis for 26 algorithms. Each one outputs several variations of a graphic.
Alaskan permafrost thoughts
The datasets are taken from scientific research within HIDA’s several institutes and universities. Covering fields like neurology, climate, biology, geology, IT etc.
The results are no classical information graphics, but rather aesthetic illustrations of otherwise invisible data.

Amino acid positions for proteins aligned to each other
Data is collected in sheets. Exported CSVs are loaded into Processing. Specifically designed algorithms then transform millions of data points into geometry, colors and motion.
The programs allow exports of PDFs for print quality and image sequences for animation.
