Flora’s Dial

Data visualisation inspired by floriology

Floras Dial is an experiment in data visualisation inspired by Floriology: the study of the language and meaning of flowers. We used data from 'Flora’s Dial’, a book written in 1865 that assigns a flower and its meaning to each day of the year, and transformed it into a stunning radial calendar reminiscent of flower petals. 

The project is part of our larger body of work exploring how to turn lists of seemingly mundane, or arbitrary data into emotionally engaging and distinctive art pieces.
