The growing complexity of issues in the environment, technology and society requires designers to learn a variety of skills including collaboration, critical thinking and technical production. In this course students become multidisciplinary design researcher/creators who employ research (ethnographic, archival), design (graphic, interactive), and computer programming to create a concrete data visualization project responding to a specific issue. Students will collaborate, learn to program small applications, gather and visualize data sets and critically reflect upon the visual representation of data.
