Priceless by Numbers

An interactive data visualization showing Mastercard’s global reach.

With: Red Paper Heart / North Kingdom
For: McCANN / Mastercard
Role: Graphics and interaction developer

This immersive installation built for the annual Mastercard Board Meeting presented a series of achievements, events and data points that the company completed during the year. Using a Leap Motion controller, users were able to explore the data geographically through three different levels: Local, Global and Regional.

A custom Cinder application was in charge of displaying an Earth globe, styled cinematically by using NASA textures and custom shading, on top of which we had to render a large volume of video assets provided by North Kingdom. The app was connected to a small kiosk housing the speakers, Leap sensor and an Arduino to control an LED strip, all in sync with the graphics.

Bonus: some interesting graphic accidents left unexplored
