In this course we explored how to translate raw data into information and how to present and communicate said information efficiently. We began by deconstructing visual cues and complex systems in our everyday lives and by reviewing, critiquing, and improving on their outward communication.

We were tasked with looking at our Facebook accounts and trying to create meaning by uncovering and communicating  patterns found in our connections and making these unearthed links meaningful and discernable to someone else.
