Marcin Ignac is a data artist and computational designer focusing on data visualisation and generative systems. In 2012 he started his studio practice Variable in order to pursue his interest in blending design, software and the aesthetics emerging from data, processes and human behaviour. Marcin has background in Computer Science, New Media Art and Interaction Design. He exhibited in Poznan, Aarhus, Vancouver, Moscow, London and Paris.
Stefanie Posavec worked as a book cover designer but eventually went freelance to focus on data-related design, with work ranging from data visualisation and information design to commissioned data art for a variety of clients. Her personal work focuses on the visual representation of data gathered from language, literature, or science. Most recently her designs from award winning book 'Dear Data' have been acquired by MoMA as part of their permanent collection.
