Now, let’s start this Interactive Inspiration with our top highlights:

Museum Week ’15 on Twitter | BRIGHT and Variable

Our opening pick is actually more of a data art project than an informative one, but nonetheless quite deserving of being in this spotlight. Museum Week is a data driven artwork representing Twitter activity related to the each museum taking part in the #MuseumWeek2015. Each artwork – the result of a collaboration between BRIGHT and Variable – is customized based on the data from the museum’s Twitter profile, it’s tweets and general activity around the Museum Week. Below the example from the Natural History Museum, London.

Our second highlight isn’t a visualization “per se“, but a career opportunity special page, from The Washington Post. So, if you’re interested in becoming a part of this freelance journalist network, register and complete a profile with contact information and samples of published work. A Post editor will review your profile and notify you if you are accepted into the network.
