Konstantin Poelke won “Honorable Mention” in the illustrations category of the world’s leading visualization competition for science and engineering: the International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge. As no-one was selected for the first place, “Honorable Mention” is this year’s highest award in this category. The International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge is held each year by the National Science Foundation and the journal Science.
For the competition entry, he visualized a complex function using the technique of domain coloring. He assigned each complex number in its equation to a spot on a color wheel. The result packs two dimensions of information (hue and brightness) into each point in the image.
Scientists, graphic designers, and artists may submit entries to the visualization competition. The award-winning contributions are those that most successfully mediate between research and society at large. The various categories include schematic illustrations, photographs, videos, and interactive computer games. This year 212 entries were submitted in five categories.
