I put up a new portfolio site at moritz.stefaner.eu. Not really finished, but good enough. You might be especially interested in the Content Landscape documentation, as I have not written about this project before.


After lots of experiments with drupal, indexhibit and wordpress, I finally settled for the simple and elegant frog cms. Highly recommended, if you want to fill a custom layout with dynamic content in a very flexible manner.

The scent of information

I just came back from the great workshop “The Scent of Information” organized by the visualization gang from LBI Linz. (program + live-blog) Here are the slides from my talk. Basically, I was presenting Andrew vande Moere’s and Andrea Lau’s triangle model of information aesthetics, and showed mostly well-formed.eigenfactor and briefly some of my thesis work.

Imitate and informate

Some striking nature-inspired generative visualizations can be found over at Imitate and informate. From the site:

This is an experimental visualization project. We are inspired by nature or other real phenomena and try to transform formal aspects of it into data visualization systems.


Imitate and Informate is a project by Cedric Kiefer and Christopher Warnow. It emerged from a course called “Reality in Virtuality” at Potsdam University of Applied Sciences, Prof. Danijela Djokic.
