Data Data datada Tada tada

Over dinner tonight with Scott Schwister we got to talking about infographics and how so far they seem to be the new "buzz" at ISTE11. Infographics and Posterous. Anyway, that conversation led to what might be a proposal for next year's conference on Infographics and rhetoric but more on that another time. Our talk reminded me of this artist whose work I found on YouTube earlier this year whose work is primarily about infographics and data visualization. In the pieces depicted here she totally shows us how we have made data into something of a fetish and shows how ridiculous the whole endeavor can be.
