A Harvard-trained architect turned information designer, Lisa Strausfeld turned her attention from visualising buildings to visualising information as a student at the MIT Media Lab in 1993. Since then, she has concentrated on designing and building immersive information experiences. In 1996, she co-founded Perspecta, an information architecture software company in San Francisco that was acquired last year by Excite@Home. Perspecta's software products automatically categorise and spatially visualise large collections of digital information. Lisa designed and built the first dynamic interface for the product and led the continued development of the interface software. In 1998, Quokka Sports contracted Perspecta to build a prototype of a live race viewer for CART (Championship Auto Racing Teams). Intrigued by Quokka's vision of sports immersion and the opportunity for visualising sports information, Strausfeld joined the company in March, 1999, and worked on building Quokka's suite of media products for web, broadband, wireless, and convergence technology platforms. She is now the principal of InformationArt, a new company based in San Francisco. With always-on broadband Internet and new advances in display technology, an opportunity exists to connect the ambient and decorative role of consumer art with digital information. InformationArt produces digital information art products for public and private environments.
