Taking data visualizing to a conceptual level, Danish design studio Hvass&Hannibal's upcoming exhibition "Losing the Plot" at London's Kemistry Gallery engagingly reinterprets info into artworks. (Click on all images for expanded view)

The Copenhagen-based duo created silkscreen prints, wooden sculptures and offset posters, beautifully and tangibly expressing data sets such as the probability theory or the registration of natural phenomena. Adding their own sensitivity to hard statistics, the multimedia designers imagine the data in bold colors, sometimes playing on traditional geometric shapes and at other times turning to more abstract imagery.

The unconventional approach isn't a stretch for Hvass&Hannibal who dropped out of grad school to design full time. Their broad spectrum of work includes album covers, illustrations, installations, music videos, art direction and the team recently offered their design knowledge as guest bloggers on "It's Nice That."

In addition to the works in the show, Kemistry will sell a series of silkscreen prints.
