BASHIBA PANORAMA: REAL-TIME DATA METAPHOR
BASHIBA Panorama is a customizable real-time data visualization engine that can be connected to any type of relevant information that requires permanent monitoring and is subject to change (financial data, traffic data, performance data, cybersecurity data, KPIs, etc...). Information is transformed from individual data streams into competing environmental forces, which affect the scenery in subtle and often surprising ways. Trends and eventual problems appear as anomalies in the weather conditions and the surface of the sea. The BASHIBA Panorama is instinctively legible and transits emotional sensations together with vital information.

"A cloud masses, the sky darkens, leaves twist upward, and we know that it will rain. We also know that after the storm, the runoff will feed into groundwater miles away, and the sky will grow clear by tomorrow. All of these events are distant in time and space, and yet they are all connected within the same pattern. Each has an influence on the rest, and influence that is usually hidden from view. You can only understand the system of a rainstorm by contemplating the whole, not any individual part of the pattern.
Businesses and other human endeavors are also systems. They, too, are bound by invisible fabrics of interrelated actions, which often take years to fully play out their effects on each other. Since we are part of that lacework ourselves, it's doubly hard to see the whole pattern of change. Instead we tend to focus on snapshots of isolated parts of the system, and wonder why our deepest problems never seem to get solved."
(Peter Senge, The Fifth Discipline, 1990, p.10).
BASHIBA transforms real-time data streams into immersive environments, in the realms of business and culture. By visualizing complex data sets through metaphoric language, formerly indiscernible relations, developments, and risks become perceivable. BASHIBA Panorama, presented here, shows the opening of the Standard & Poor market index of the US stock market during the Black Monday of the 24th of August 2015. The changes in the Standard & Poor Index, the volatility and anxiety of the market are expressed in ocean waves, cloud transformations, wind and sun strength, thus forming a single, moving image. We are not outside observers of this ocean landscape, but are catapulted over it in a flight pattern, whose height and speed equally represent market performance, and remind us in an emotional way what flying above stormy water could feel like. In this way we enable the viewer to have an emotional experience of market risk (systematic risk).
"The focus is more and more on hazards which are neither visible nor perceptible to the victims; hazards that in some cases may not even take effect within the lifespans of those affected, but instead during those of their children; hazards in any case that require the ‘sensory organs’ of science – theories, experiments, measuring instruments – in order to become visible or interpretable as hazards at all. “
(Ulrich Beck, The Risk Society, 1992, p. 27)
In business environments, we tend to double-check and re-read variables that in moments of crisis might be irrelevant. BASHIBA Panorama has been built as a natural visual complement so that you and your team can share a common picture of reality and openly discuss counter-measures.

BASHIBA PANORAMA: FROM NUMBERS TO IMAGES
BASHIBA offers companies the possibility to have virtual windows on a beautiful landscape that reacts in real-time to company data changes. Developments of the stock market, for instance, become perceivable by cloud transformations, size and speed of ocean waves, wind and sun strength, to name a few. The result is a beautiful, developing scene in which observers (e.g. traders) can monitor several streams of background information using their peripheral vision.
