Phoenix (she/her) is a neurodivergent firebird with a PhD in Physics, a background in science communication, and a love of adventure. She was born and grew up in the south-east of England but has lived across the UK and beyond, and travels whenever and wherever she can.

Inspired by space, science and science fiction, Phoenix has twice applied, unsuccessfully, for the position of Astronaut with the European Space Agency, once reaching the final 400 candidates. She loves animals, especially dogs, and has provided a forever home to several rescue dogs.

Phoenix has recently begun to explore data visualisation art and her first project about the Soviet Space Dogs combined these two loves, and is being sold to raise money for dogs abandoned during the conflict in Ukraine.  All her data art projects support a worthy cause - details of the charities supported can be found on the page for each project, and prints and products can be purchased via Redbubble.  

Phoenix is learning Russian, with limited success, and still hopes to leave the planet eventually.

Data Visualisation

Data visualisation is the art of taking data which might normally be displayed in a list, table or spreadsheet, and making it visual. This could mean presenting numerical data as a line, bar or pie chart, or conveying information via infographics.

Visualisation allows the viewer to make use of pre-attentive processing, a swift, sub-conscious process that allows the brain to rapidly distinguish differences in attributes such as size, shape, orientation and colour. Thus the data can be more easily compared, trends understood, and conclusions drawn.

Data visualisations can be works of art as well as a method for conveying information, using a visual alphabet to tell the story behind the data in a visually pleasing way, often presenting multiple layers of information within a single artwork. They are effective tools for highlighting issues and prompting action, as well as being beautiful to look at.

If you have idea for future visualisations, please get in touch.
