Of the 33,162 meteorites that were found in the past 100 years, only 625 were seen falling to Earth. This graphic takes a closer look at these 625 meteorites, highlighting the year they fell, their classification, their mass and where they landed on the Earth.

Love Will Tear Us Apart Again maps all known cover versions of the iconic 1979 song by Joy Division. Spanning the 33 years since the record was released, the graph shows the subsequent 168 cover versions arranged in clockwise chronological space. The original 10 song variants recorded by the band occupy the centre top portion of the graph and are radially flanked by the numerous covers. The central cluster is a comparative waveform analysis of the three studio versions (outer ring) recorded by Joy Division and the two posthumous remixes (inner ring) released in 1995. Interestingly, the visualisation shows the inherent variation in song structure from recording to recording as the band engineered the particular sound they wanted the song to express.
The remarkable number of cover versions and the enduring popularity of Love Will Tear Us Apart is a resounding testament to what is widely considered to be one of the greatest pop songs ever written.

WHAT MADE ME was designed together with Kuba Kolec
for the Birmingham Made Me Design Expo, 15-22 June 2012.
Commissioned by the Idea Birmingham and Birmingham City
University, the installation was created to provide an interactive
experience for visiting public.
Through a visual system that uses colour, line and grid
composition, the project explored what shapes the people
of Birmingham by asking participants what made them
Think, Create, Angry, Happy and Change. Each question was
represented by a different thread colour and could be answered
by connecting relevant words together. Over the course of
the week, a multi-layered, visual data map has been created,
concluding the Birmingham Made Me Design Expo and
receiving The Most Original Exhibit Award 2012.
