The other day, I came across this lovely work by Jez Burrows for the 2010 Kill Your Timid Notion festival, two examples from which are shown below. I especially love the iconic diagrams that he created to represent different events and ideas contained within the festival.
You’ll find more from this project on Jez’ website, which is well worth some browsing time. Also interesting are upcoming publications from Sing Statistics. Oh, and if you know Radiolab, look into this too.
