Announcing Airshow 2.0

We are ready to roll out Airshow 2.0, a redesigned curriculum for motion-based data presentations.

Three years ago, we created the Airshow concept as a study of how stories come alive using data. We drew inspiration from cinematography and combined with the work of Welles, Tufte and Rosling to build a new theory of presentations. We offered explanations of: 

  • How and why are presentations different from one-on-one interactions?
  • Will new user interface metaphors such as touch help tell stories better than the slide advance clicker?
  • Are motion and interaction an effective ways to present? If so, how are they to be choreographed and directed?
  • How does “camera position” affect a data story?

Since that initial concept, we have learned far more.

Airshow 2.0 moves beyond executing a story in pixels to the writing and directing process. As before, we teach using the process itself: through stories presented as data. 

A full-day presentation of Airshow 2.0 will debut on May 28 in Boston. We will also hold a special performance in San Francisco on Saturday June 11 (weekend before WWDC) to commemorate Airshow’s third anniversary.
