The beginnings of the second image

Imaging and Data Visualisation image:

The keywords we decided to elaborate on here were “Structure”, “analysis”, “dynamic”, “conceive, create and apply” and “awareness”.

Here we began to think of eyes as the primary element of the picture (as visualisation is in the title and eyes are important generally in this line of work)

An idea we liked was the idea of including a visual representation of divergent thinking, and I thought since imagination is usually expressed visually as being magical and colourful we could use a rainbow or the colour spectrum to represent it.

We used the cover of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album as inspiration:

The idea of the beam of white light hitting a prism to separate each hue looks visually stunning, but the generation of one colour into many could also represent divergent thinking. We came up with these sketches that were inspired by the album cover:

using a brain instead of a prism we tried many different combinations of ideas. There's the explosive brains with straight lines, the wispy lines, the storyboard lines and the comet which was quite random

We came up with this final image for this concept:

we used an eye instead of a brain to symbolise visualisation and kept the rainbow. we made it as colourful and striking as we could to make it interesting

Another idea we had was to elaborate on “data visualisation” and we looked to the film The Matrix (1999) for inspiration because a large portion of the movie is about visualising data and manipulating it in the digital world

Both of the above images are stills from The Matrix (1999) and were only used as inspiration for our design.

To finish we made this concept image (using a completely original character) visualising a world of data Matrix-style
