Keynote & Capstone
With a background in Cognitive Science and Interface Design, his work beautifully balances analytical and aesthetic aspects in mapping complex phenomena to support data–driven decision making.
He is the record winner of the Kantar Information is Beautiful awards and his work has been exhibited at Venice Biennale of Architecture, SIGGRAPH, Max Planck Science Gallery, Fondation EDF, and Ars Electronica.
In the past, Moritz has helped clients like the OECD, Google News Initiative, Salesforce, World Economic Forum, Deutsche Bahn and the Max Planck Research Society to find insights and beauty in large data sets.
As a writer, co-host of the Data Stories podcast, and sought-after keynote speaker and workshop facilitator, Moritz Stefaner continues to excite more and more people about the magic that can emerge when art and science connect.
As an independent “Truth & Beauty Operator”, Moritz Stefaner is constantly chasing the perfect shape for information: how can we create expressive, intriguing, and elegant data experiences? Exploring the art and the science of successful data visualization alike, he will discuss his learnings from pushing the boundaries of the field — from interactive experiences over data sculptures to even using food for representing data.
A participatory approach is the foundation for building design solutions that empower citizens, policymakers, experts and non-experts to make informed decisions. Angela will guide us through the journey of co-designing data visualizations that present information in effective ways in order to capture the imagination of an audience.
