IKW team HistogramArt – get creative!
Data & technology become art: The posters

Histo…what?

Don’t worry, unless you are a passionate photographer or like to post-process your photos professionally, you don’t need to know anything about histograms. In an elevator pitch, they would probably be described like this:

A histogram represents the distribution of pixels (image points) in an image from dark (far left) to light (far right). The trained eye can thus see whether an image has sufficient detail to be processed further. In addition, one can see the distribution for individual colour channels (here: CMYK). We used this representation as a basis for our HistogramArt. The result is a total of nine HistogramArt posters.

IKW team as hosts and volunteers at the “Münchner Tafel” (Munich food bank)

The “Münchner Tafel” is an independent association pursuing the social aim of giving free food every week to thousands of Munich residents in need, their so-called guests. In 2019, the IKW team supported the Münchner Tafel as host with a financial donation. In addition, the team members were also able to get personally involved: Those who wanted to were released to help hand out the food. Here you can find a few impressions.

A swarm of bees was omnipresent during my day at the “Tafel”. No wonder, given the wide variety of perfectly ripe fruits.

When – far too late – the van finally turned around the corner, I had even forgotten about the rain. Now, everything needs to happen quickly! I only became aware of how exhaustive this day of work was when I felt my sore muscles afterwards. On site I had been in a flow state.

(Wiebke)

The work was so intense that I had only noticed my sunburn when I arrived at home.

(Lukas)

I was very impressed by the creativity and enthusiasm of some guests. The idea of making a mushroom sauce from the excess of mushrooms to avoid wastefulness was great.

(Regina)

During my work at the Tafel, the feeling of togetherness was strengthened within me. One coud sense the solidarity and kindness of all helpers. That is what makes work fun and time flies.

(Fritz)

An old man has impressed me most. He only took products which either nobody else wanted or which were still available in large quantities. I wanted to know why. His explanation was: “I still have some money left over, I can also buy some food this month. Those who have no money should get more.

(Wiebke)

The logistical effort that is involved is overwhelming.
