While migration is primarily associated with the displacement of people fleeing away from life-threatening conflict zones, the term also denotes animal behavior such as the seasonal migration of birds or fish. Moreover, certain economical, political, ecological or sociocultural changes cause vast amounts of diverse movements. The aim of this exhibition is to provide a more elaborate understanding of the continuously changing world. This frequent or constant change, also called flux, inspired us to create compelling visualizations about less obvious, yet relevant subjects.

The secret behind your cut flowers by Lindy Versyck

The Secret Behind Your Cut Flowers

Lindy Versyck

The cut flowers you are buying aren’t as innocent as you think, Belgium imports their flowers from all over the world and my aim is to show that you are giving a bouquet full of misery.

Flowers are a symbol of wishing someone good health or showing your love to somebody. But the cut flowers you are buying aren’t as innocent as you think. I did extensive research on this subject and asked myself questions such as: Where do our cut flowers actually come from? Which journey do they make? When I immersed myself in this subject I quickly realized that there are many complaints about the cut flower industry.

Turning Numbers into Stories

Ben Ooghe

I tried to present the viewer with the ability to explore a large migration database guided by the explanatory social-economic events hidden behind the numbers.

Human migration is a frequently occurring event these days and one of the most obvious findings that global migration patterns give us, is one from southern to northern hemisphere regions. The focus in this design however is not on the destination, but rather on the origin. While exploring my collected migration data I almost instantly discovered they were shaped according to historical events of the country in question.
It’s this observation that made me try to create a sensible interface where these migration patterns could be explored, guided with their social-economical background, ultimately turning numbers into stories.

The real coast by Isabelle Depré

The Real Cost

Isabelle Depré

Because of fast fashion, clothes become cheaper every year. While we don’t think twice about buying an item only to wear it once, blood has been spilled and nature get’s ruined. Someone else has to pay the real cost.

When we buy new clothes we often look at the price first. Other items have become more expensive over the years, but clothes are cheaper than ever. This is because of the concept fast fashion. Retailers like H&M, Primark, Zara and so on, make sure to have new pieces at bottom prices every week, which assures the costumers can be fashionable and trendy without having to spend too much money. You buy a trend, wear it a few times, and throw it away. Why not? The item you bought was cheap anyway. But while we do not pay the cost for our clothes, someone else did.
People in third world countries work in inhumane conditions, perfectly good clothes get dumped in landfills, transport is polluting the environment ... It is time to think about what we wear.

Climate Change: the Precursor of disasters by Fazilet Tanrikulu

Climate Change:
The Precursor of Disasters

Fazilet Tanrikulu

Climate Change: The Precursor of Disasters is a data animation in which I aim to raise awareness about climate refugees.

Climate change has been a controversial topic for the past decade. It has a big impact on our planet and on animals and humans. Millions of people are affected by natural disasters on a yearly basis due to climate change and are forced to leave their homes in order to survive. Climate change has become a harbinger of disasters, like clouds ahead of a storm. It causes more people to flee their homes in search of better living conditions than war ever did.

The Migration of Belgian Paintings by Mieke Gochet

The Migration of Belgian Paintings

Mieke Gochet

Paintings are dynamic objects because they change place. This visualization shows the journey of six top-level Belgian portraits from gallery to gallery.

How often does a museum lents it’s paintings to other museums and where are these museums located? The worldwide exchange of six female portraits of the Royal Museum of Art in Antwerp (KMSKA) was visualized as a spatio-temporal map. Each painting’s path is represented on a transparent plate and all six plates are stacked one behind the other. Together, this creates an overall view which shows in which places the works were mostly present. The stacking of the plates also refers to the storing of paintings in museums on movable racks: you can choose one work or select several works and compare them.
It is remarkable that most of the works have been in the same museums, although they date from another century or are made by another hand. We can therefore say that the KMSKA has ties with a couple of museums in Asia, especially in Japan, and a few states in America, but mostly in Europe.

Female Genital Mutilation by Kimberly De Cock

Female Genital Mutilation

Kimberly De Cock

There is a need for a different approach towards female genital mutilation. I wanted to show the magnitude of circumcised women that migrate which are 36000 women.

The conversation on female genital mutilation is mostly about the circumcision itself. My aim is to communicate the stories behind this cruelty. The 36.000 incisions in my book stand for the number of women that flee from this inhuman deed. One incision represents one woman, this is an insignificant number if you are aware that there are 300 million girls circumcised. It should be a constitutional right that women are able to make decisions about there own body. In general, people know what female genital mutilation is, but have no idea how these women cope with their harmful story.

Migration to the Emirates by Ken Heylen

Migration to the Emirates

Ken Heylen

This tall object represents the big differences within the local population of the Emirates and the migrants. Every side of this column shows another aspect of this diverse population. All colors represent different data: Emirati and non Emirati, their nationality and employements.

Commuting from and to our workplace is something we can all relate to, but longtime displacement for work is also very occurring. The United Arab Emirates are a place where the latter is very present. But is this destination really that appealing for those people? The ratio between immigrants and locals is 10 to 1. This unusual proportion was the starting point of my research about the migration to the Emirates and in particular the work related migration to Dubai. This state has the most migrants compared to local residents out of any of the seven federal states in the Emirates. My visualisation provides clearly visible information to compare sectors mutually.

The Road to Brussels by Rami Haji Rashid Ahmed

The Road to Brussels

Brussels is known to be one of the most diverse and multicultural cities in the world with a staggering number of 120 nationalities. This visualization prioritizes on showing the different nationalities within Brussels.

Brussels is known to be one of the most diverse and multicultural cities in the world with a staggering number of 120 nationalities. Brussels is home to a large number of immigrants. At the last Belgian census in 1991, 63.7% of all the inhabitants in Brussels-Capital Region answered that they were born in Belgium. However, there have been numerous individual or familial migrations towards Brussels since the end of the 18th century, from neighbouring to more distant countries. This interactive visualization prioritizes on showing all the different nationalities within Brussels.

The evolution of English by Andrea Boeckearts The evolution of English by Andrea Boeckearts

The Evolution of English

Andrea Boeckaerts

The English language has an extensive history and its development is still ongoing. This poster gives a complete overview of the evolution and expansions of the English language.

The spoken language is invisible, you can not touch it nor photograph it. That’s why it is an interesting challenge to visualize this kind of migration. The evolution of English covers a topic that isn’t obvious and therefore difficult to design. The English language has an extensive history and its development is still in progress.
The poster I designed is divided into three parts: the past, the present and the future of the English speech. These three parts each show a different visualization but when put together, it gives a complete overview of the developments and expansions of the English language

Trail: One Year in the Life of a Snail by Tina De Souter

Trail: One Year in the Life of a Snail

Tina De Souter

Every spread of the book represents 60 metres in a snails’ reality. The snail is born on the cover and travels through the entire book and thus, the book represents one year in the life of a snail.

I wanted to focus on daily, unnoticed migrations, those that happen all the time right under our noses. Snails migrate through seasons and mostly show themselves at night but it’s only when our garden is blooming and fruits are hanging from trees, that we notice that they are around. It’s during this period we curiously ask ourselves the question: “Where are all these snails coming from?”

Shifting Forests by Elisabeth Colpeart

Shifting Forests

Elisabeth Colpaert

Forest migration is the movement of large communities of trees over a big period of time due to climate change. My work contains data about the estimated future of different tree species.

Forest migration is the movement of large communities of trees over a big period of time due to climate change. My work contains data about the estimated future of different tree species. Trees provide us with many essential benefits and services: they purify water and air, provide a habitat for wildlife, regulate the climate and implement recreation. Due to climate change forests are shifting. Climate change evolves at a high rate and species are compelled to migrate in order to survive.
Forests, however, are not able to migrate at the same speed as climate change. This causes a strong decrease in the volume of forests. This decrease is the main focus in my work. My aim is to create awareness by visualizing this critical movement.

In October of 2016, the largest beer brewery; AB InBev, merged with the second largest, SABMiller, making them even bigger. This visualization maps their growth over de last decades, based on their merges and the brands owned by AB InBev.

In October of 2016, the largest brewery of beer, AB InBev, merged with the second largest, SABMiller. This merger made AB InBev superior in the global beer market. The visualization I made wants to map their growth over the last decades, based on their merges and acquisitions and the brands owned by AB InBev.
AB InBev was formed through successive mergers of three international brewing groups: Interbrew from Belgium, AmBev from Brazil, and Anheuser-Busch from the United States. It is known for producing beers including Budweiser, Stella Artois, Labatt, and Goose Island. SABMiller is known for Miller, Foster’s, Blue Moon, Peroni, and many others. The deal puts a huge portion of the world’s beer market under the same umbrella: The AB InBev-SABMiller union now has an estimated global market share of close to 30%.

Drawing the Line by Isabel Naesens

Drawing the Line

Isabel Naesens

72 barriers to prevent the movement of people. All the border barriers today cover more than half of the Earth’s circumference. Drawing the Line maps these closed borders on a geographical grid, exposing relations and conflicts within regions.

What means do governments use to obstruct people from migrating? How do you ‘close’ a border? And how big is this phenomenon called ‘border barriers’?
In Drawing the Line I map these closed borders on a geographical grid, exposing relations and conflicts within regions. It becomes clear which regions suffer from economical imbalance, which countries choose for strong internal politics and which conflicts have remained unsolved for the last 30 or 40 years.

Migration of Intelligence by Charlotte Lauwers

Migration of Intelligence

Charlotte Lauwers

Visualising a phenonemon called brain gain by translating raw data to illustrative braincells.

This book visualizes a peculiar form of migration, namely the brain gain phenomenon. I worked in an informative, yet tactile way while trying to find harmony between the correctness of information and aesthetical tactility. My data was the amount of highly skilled migrants from brain drain countries to the 15 biggest brain gain countries between 1980 and 2010. From this visual overview you can draw conclusions on what countries suffered the most from brain drain and to which brain gain countries most (smart) people migrated to. The project brought me to an illustrative collection of 15 brain cells. All together, a Book of Intelligence.
