Jaime Serra Palou

Multidisciplinary artist and journalist, La Vanguardia

Director of Infographics for Spanish daily newspaper La Vanguardia since 2007.

In recent years his activity moves on the line between journalism and art through the use of data, as raw material and infographics as his tool. As part of this strategy he combines expositions in art spaces with the steady publication, of those same materials, adapted into editorial formats for mass media, like the spanish daily newspaper ‘La Vanguardia’ or the french weekly newspaper ‘Courrier International’.

On March of 2012, prior to the ceremony of the Malofiej Infographics Awards, the SND-E recognized him as “the most influential infographer of the past twenty years, 1992-2012”.

Topic: Data and truths (Everyone loves talking about ‘me’)
Armed with the most modern technologies we pick up, analyze and visualize massive amounts of data that, as individuals, aren’t of any use for us at all, because they are not true. Can we empathize with data? Yes, if they are truthful: applied to a specific person, at a certain moment and facing a particular situation.
