Alsino Skowronnek is a Berlin-based data designer, artist, map maker and producer of visual artefacts. He has collaborated with organizations around the world, always at the intersection of data visualization, storytelling and socioeconomic issues.
His deep interest in making sense of data has somehow lead him from Economic Geography towards Interface and Data Design as well as - more recently - towards Data Art and installations.
He is currently exploring how data can be used in storytelling not only as a carrier of information, but instead as a material resource to express affect and emotional meaning.
