content curation

A deep dive into the data commoditization process revealed its complexity.  No one really understands exactly how it works and little has been done to regulate it.   

the evolution of a concept map

We synthesized our research into a concept map that explains the relationships between entities and data in the data commoditization process.  

visual experimentation

We experimented with materiality and various representational techniques.  Our goal was to communicate the gritty, cryptic nature of data commoditization and the uneasy feelings we associate with it.

The mobile experience utilizes. concrete examples and animations to expand upon each step in the data commoditization concept map on Spread 2.
