Data Art: Books on My Nightstand - student project

This was the exact class I was looking for to explore data visualization! I'm now in love with analog data art!

Here are my steps:

1. Exploring icons

5. My rough draft. (Note to self: Consider inserting data into a spreadsheet to help with arranging the visualizations!)

I'm following this process again to create my second piece of data art!
