Gastvortrag – Johanna Drucker (UCLA): „Visualization for Modeling Interpretation“ als Teil des Workshops „Visualization in/as Digital Media Studies“
Montag, 15. November 2021, 15:00 - 17:00 Uhr

Visualizations are generated as the display of data or information, and in spite of their many interactive features for query, search, filter, and other activities, they are not used as primary methods for modeling interpretation. Several crucial components are required for modeling, rather than display, and the specific elements of interpretative work add other requirements to the design of the interface. This talk sketches some principles and concepts for the design of visual environments for modeling interpretation and examines a few cases that suggest potential directions.


Johanna Drucker is the Breslauer Chair and Distinguished Professor of Information Studies at UCLA. She is internationally known for her work in artists’ books, the history of graphic design, typography, experimental poetry, fine art, and digital humanities.


The lecture is part of the online workshop “Visualization in/as Digital Media Studies” on Nov 18 – 19, 2021.
