Keywords: Data, interaction, meaning, graphic design, programming, research

Description:
Visualisation is an increasingly important part of making sense of our highly networked, data-rich world. Using a combination of interpretive methods and representational techniques, we will explore various ways visualisation can make invisible relationships, structures and stories visible. Drawing inspiration from the history of visualisation, the principles of interactive media, and the foundations of graphic design, we will learn how to extend the capabilities of ordinary perception to tell stories and draw insight from information.
During this 5 day course, we will use analog and digital techniques to practice creating compelling interactive data visualisations using a variety of data. We will learn how to collect, classify, encode, and display data and use interactivity to construct relationships and meaning. The course will involve drawing, prototyping, and programming using both static and dynamic data.

Learning expectations:

  • Learn how to collect, classify, and encode data
  • Learn the foundations of data visualization
  • Practicing using metaphor, visual relationships, and interaction to make meaning out of data
  • Develop skills to tell a story with data
  • Learn analog and digital techniques for making visualisations
