Layer is an augmented reality app, which through visiting 5 hot spots, takes the user through a 24-hr cycle where patterns found in nature are paired with visualized patterns of human interaction with technology that occur at similar times of the day.
Network patterns are everywhere, both in nature, like in the arteries of a leaf, and in technology, like in transportation systems. While we often see patterns in nature and recognize them immediately, patterns in technology are not so easily seen with the naked eye. Data visualization allows us to see these patterns clearly, providing not just beautiful images but also a better understanding of the world we live in.
The amount of data whizzing past us can seem never ending. It can be hard to engage and understand data that looks purely like numbers and words. This App attempts to provide a new visual way of understanding data that otherwise you may not engage with.
