Manuel Lima, praised by Wired as “the man who turned data into an art,” is the founder of visualcomplexity.com, design lead at Google, a teacher of data visualization at Parsons School of Design and the author of The Book of Circles: Visualizing Spheres of Knowledge. Join him for a fascinating tour through millennia of circular information design in architecture, urban planning, fine art, design, fashion, technology, religion, cartography, biology, astronomy and physics in a visual feast for infographics enthusiasts. From Venn diagrams and early celestial charts to the trefoil biohazard symbol and Target’s corporate logo, Lima provides a history of the sphere and his unique taxonomy of the many varieties of circle diagrams. There will be a book signing following the event.Buy tickets/get more info now
