Sara De Bondt’s live data analysis for the Artissima art fair in Turin
At the heart of Sara De Bondt’s identity design for last weekend’s Artissima art fair in Turin, Italy was a live publishing department which worked with real-time data connected to the event. When Eye editor John L. Walters interviewed De Bondt for Eye 80 (see ‘A certain smile’), she explained her approach to the project: ‘[Artissima is] in an old ice-skating rink – there’s a spectator booth for the commentator box where we will be constantly updating data … The statistics we’ll present in quite a few different styles, from Jeremy Dellar-style music maps to super-dry pie charts or bar diagrams, depending on the context.’
