Data visualisation: new narratives and transformation of knowledge

The ever-growing amount of information on the Web makes it necessary to create new tools to help build a clear and engaging message. Of increasing importance in this respect is the question of how to acquire, process and present large data sets. An important aspect of this process is its effect on the model of knowledge production in network society. Find out more at


Moritz Stefaner works as a “truth and beauty operator” on the crossroads of data visualization, information aesthetics and user interface design. With a background in Cognitive Science (B.Sc. with distinction, University of Osnabrueck) and Interface Design (M.A., University of Applied Sciences Potsdam), his work balances analytical and aesthetic aspects in mapping abstract and complex phenomena.

In the past, he has helped clients like the OECD, the World Economic Forum, Skype, dpa, FIFA, and Max Planck Research Society to find insights and beauty in large data sets. He was nominated for the Design Award of the Federal Republic of Germany and is a multiple winner of the Kantar Information is Beautiful awards. His work has been exhibited at Venice Biennale of Architecture, SIGGRAPH, Ars Electronica and the Max Planck Science Gallery.
