I enjoyed this post about the five best data visualizations projects of the year 2008 from flowingdata.com. Every scientist has the problem of visualizing data and wants to go beyond the usual 2D line graphs, 2D contour plots, and 3D graphs.
The anthropologist in you might like "I want you to want me" exhibit, shown in early 2008 at the Museum of Modern Art. Surely, anthropologists are having a field day with all the social data from today's internet. The Radiohead "laser" film is pretty cool, too. I think I can see the diffraction patterns from the lasers.
