Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec are data craftswomen.
At a time when the data is generated on its own with great speed, with the "Dear Data" project they have decided to slow down, to focus and concentrate on the manual collection of information, accomplishing a very sweet and extreme action, taking a poetic as well as firm stance.
For a whole year, with care and light heartedness, occupying their evenings and free time, the two designers have sent each other a postcard a week, for 52 times, from London to Brooklyn and vice versa, postcards crammed with visual representations of personal data.
The result is on-line (www.dear-data.com), but also at Brera for the Fuorisalone. And soon it will be in our hands in a beautiful book.
