2020: A year of remote dataviz

Eric Rodenbeck | 02.02.21

2019: Data visualization projects by Stamen Design

Eric Rodenbeck | 01.08.20

The last year of the decade gave us plenty of opportunities to work and play with data of all kinds, from governance indices to cloud storage data to a mostly unseen but truly vast archive of “motorized photographs” by Ed Ruscha.
