Twenty teams from 8 different design schools were challenged to visualize the impact of humanityâ€™s footprint on Spaceship Earth at the inaugural Visualizing Marathon: a 24-hour student data visualization competition.
The winning visualization, One Day Cause + Effect, was lauded for its personal narrative and striking design and received the Juryâ€™s top score for â€˜understandingâ€™ â€“ the ability to help the reader better understand the impact of humanityâ€™s footprint on Earth. An honorable mention goes to the School of Visual Arts Team #1 for its Pushing the Boundaries visualization that was able to use great interaction design to effectively communicate the impact of humans on our Earth. Another honorable mention was awarded to Maryland College Institute of Artâ€™s Team #3 for its coherent analysis of data and effective storytelling in What Kind of World Do You Want?
Congratulations to the winning team and the winning school - Maryland College Institute of Art! MICA will receive the very first Visualizing Marathon trophy â€“ a data visualization sculpture produced by generative architect Skylar Tibbits. Each member of the winning team will receive a specially engraved iPad. Go team MICA!
