ART 335 - Information Visualization (4)

This course will introduce students to the study of information visualization as a wide-ranging practice for the creation of complex visual messages. Through sustained project work, students will investigate the ways that illustration, text, photography, sound, and the moving image can, in different ways, participate in the process of communicating multi-faceted and multi-dimensional systems of information. Lectures, readings, and student research will supplement project work, introducing students to the concentrated disciplines of mapping, timelines, and the history of information representation.
