experimental energy visualisation tests

Miska's role :
design, code, and data cleaning.

Project description :
Different experiments in giving life to energy use data, for the Helsinki energy company HelEn (Helsingin Energia).
The animation shows different modes of enlivening energy use data. There’s been an attempt at making some otherwise less exciting energy data more interesting by providing connotations of energy in the renderings of the energy use/data.








Below are some screnshots of the light visualisation showing different moments in the Helsinki "light-year".
