ARTS 4870 - Creative Data Design

Data design offers a way to reveal, analyze, and engage with data, from scientific visualization to information design to artistic sonification. At the same time, the translation from abstract data to image and sound carries risks of manipulation and subjective interpretation. This course introduces contemporary practices in the perceptualizing of data using digital tools for creative exploration and critical analysis. It explores the evolution of visualization and the notion of truth through visual representation.
