A collaborative workshop exploring potential for innovative visual communication and interpretation strategies within the Garden.
Information design and visualization have the potential to connect data with the human experience through story telling, collaborative making, and critical reflection.
Data can be a powerful tool for understanding the world around us and the people in it. But the way it is collected and displayed can also frustrate this understanding by dehumanizing and decontextualizing human experience—something that too often happens when the data deals with marginalized individuals, communities, and spaces.
During this talk, I will ask you to explore questions regarding the nature of information-rich spaces, what it means to create learning partnerships—both academic and public—at the Garden, how to demonstrate trust and vulnerability using design, and how might story and place connect with visitors using emerging informational displays.
