Data Made (Fairly) Interesting

It's official: CAFA Museum has the best exhibitions in town. Last week a Joseph Beuys show opened, today it was Information in Style - a modestly-sized look at how design, art and technology are combining to present information and statistics in new and interesting ways.
The works were mainly from London colleges like the RCA and Bartlett. I like the one on the right which visualises - in 3D form - Twitter trends during the London 2012 Olympic Games. 
What was missing though was a different way of presenting the opening ceremony's speeches. There were six of them, including mine. It would have been fun to apply some software which took out all the duplication and projected a composite reduced from 40 minutes to four.
