Stefanie Posavec is a London-based designer, artist, and author for whom data is her favoured material, with projects ranging from data visualization, book design, and information design to commissioned artworks. Her art practice focuses on non-traditional representations of data derived from language, literature, or scientific topics, often using a hand-crafted, hand-drawn approach.
This work has been exhibited internationally at major galleries including MoMA (New York), CCBB (Rio de Janeiro), the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the V&A, the Design Museum, the Science Museum, and Somerset House (London). She was Facebook’s first data-artist-in-residence at their Menlo Park campus, and more recently was the data-artist-in-residence at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London.
She recently completed a year-long drawing project with Giorgia Lupi called Dear Data, where each week they gathered and drew their data on a postcard to send to the other. This project was nominated for the London Design Museum’s illustrious ‘Designs of the Year 2016’ exhibition, and a book of this project (Dear Data) is published by Particular Books (Penguin UK) and Princeton Architectural Press (USA). Their new book, Observe, Collect, Draw! is also published by Princeton. The 104 postcards and sketchbooks that form the project are held in the permanent collection of MoMA, New York.
