Lorem About The Handbook of Visual Culture Visual culture has become one of the most dynamic fields of scholarship, a reflection of how the study of human culture increasingly requires distinctively visual ways of thinking and methods of analysis. Bringing together leading international scholars to assess all aspects of visual culture, the Handbook aims to provide a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the subject. The Handbook embraces the extraordinary range of disciplines which now engage in the study of the visual - film and photography, television, fashion, visual arts, digital media, geography, philosophy, architecture, material culture, sociology, cultural studies and art history. Throughout, the Handbook is responsive to the cross-disciplinary nature of many of the key questions raised in visual culture around digitization, globalization, cyberculture, surveillance, spectacle, and the role of art.
Reply As I spend more time with ProcessingI become more and more impressed with its ease of use and its adaptability.
I set a new homework assignment for myself which was to parse some XML that represents project data for a group over the course of a year into a meaningful visualization.
It would give a sense of the percentage of effort for the year, but it would not have had any real informational density. A good visualization should incorporate as many axes of interpretation as possible and should represent them with as little cognitive effort as possible.
A really good visualization should illuminate traits that would not be apparent or at least be harder to observe otherwise and give insights and foster conclusions that would not be available otherwise. So I set out on my project. As I am still relatively new to the tool, I wanted to get a feel for it by using as few plug-ins and helpers as possible, preferring to build whatever routines I needed to get my visual across from scratch.
As one might expect, I made a lot of initial mistakes! I started by creating a series of arrays and loaded each column into each array so that I could use each array individually as needed.
While this is one possible approach, it quickly became unwieldy and confusing, trying to keep straight which array represented what data and of course, the design was brittle because a change to the schema would mean massive changes to the program.
I got smart after a few sessions and created a class object to represent the units of data and loaded a single array of typed data.
From here, I was able to pull out the data I needed when I needed it. It also meant that instead of using many large arrays of data, I could have one source array and create sub-sets of the main array that could be iterated more quickly and efficiently!
This is definitely a good lesson learned! I added comparators to my class constructor so that I could sort the arrays by date or index and that too was a huge win for manageability.
Once I had the data in a form in which I could use, I started messing around with the rendering methods. My first forays were pretty dismal.
I tried relating effort and time sorted by date and sequence and … well, as you can see from the rendering… it was a mess. It was just a mash of lines.
So no points for this first effort. Second attempt — I tried a different approach to grouping the data and then calculating graph points. Things worked a little better in that now, data points were no longer floating around meaninglessly, drifting off senseless directions.
In fact, it started to look a little like a good old western blot like I used to do in the old biochemistry lab. But once again, I felt like this was pretty meaningless, and I was pretty sure that the marks were not actually representative of what I was intending.
So I tried again.Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years. We have now placed Twitpic in an archived state. So I accidentally binge-watched all seven seasons of Game of Thrones last summer, and have spent the last few months wondering how ashamed I should be.
Okay but seriously, it’s made me think about media consumption, specifically the way it might affect how we see “the world.” As a girl, I was.
