Richard Vijgen

Information designer and datavisualisation

Richard Vijgen is an information designer working with dynamic and screen based media. His work is process based and often results in generative and/or semi-autonomous software and installations. The design process extends from the work's visual appearance to the editorial structure, all the way into the depth of the software and the subroutines it exists of.

The Deleted City

His project The Deleted City is a visualization of the world wide web as it was in its origin. Richard Vijgen used a dataset of personal homepages from Geocities, which was deleted when Facebook and other online services took over.
