Stefanie Posavec

Stefanie Posavec is a designer for whom data is her favoured material, with projects ranging from data visualization and information design to commissioned data art.

Her personal work focuses on non-traditional representations of data derived from language, literature, or scientific topics, often using a hand-crafted approach. This work has been exhibited internationally at major galleries including MoMA (New York), CCBB (Rio de Janeiro), the Science Gallery (Dublin), the V&A, The Southbank Centre, and Somerset House (London).

She recently completed a year-long drawing project with Giorgia Lupi (based in NYC) called Dear Data, where each week they gathered and drew their data on a postcard to send to the other. A book of this project will be published in September 2016 by Penguin Random House UK.
