On October 27th I will be speaking in the Architecture and Design NOW series at the University of Lethbridge. If you would like to attend, here is more info.
This talk will focus on my practice in information visualization (infovis), which has largely been shaped by my background in design, a deep rooted connection to the people and landscape in Alberta, and a desire to engage with public interest and activist topics. Infovis is an extremely powerful tool for improving comprehension of complex information and its recent adoption in creative fields has lead to a surge of new applications. Meanwhile, technology fluctuates, access to information is variable, and best practices in infovis, design, and activism often conflict with each other. In my talk I will discuss my experience navigating through these opportunities and challenges and show the body of work that has emerged.
