As students of Stefan Sagmeister at the University of Applied Sciences Salzburg, Philipp Steinweber and Strukt’s Andreas Koller worked on the topic “Is it possible to touch someone’s heart with design?”. Together they created an information graphic visualizing the text in the holy books of the five world religions.
Is it possible to touch someone’s heart with design?
In June 2007 the original 7×3-meter (23×10-foot) artwork was exhibited for the first time at Hangar-7 in Salzburg, Austria. It is also shown at the c.stem festival in Milan, Italy, and on the Processing.org online exhibition, on visualcomplexity.com and infosthetics.com. Similar Diversity was mentioned in EYE magazine #64 and PAGE magazine 12/2007 as well as in numerous publication on the topic of data visualization.
