Concept Visualized

A research concept randomly selected from a research article that was reviewed in class discussion was re-interpreted in a visual way to try to capture meaning that made sense on an individual level and could be effectively communicated to others.

"STANDARD" Admittedly, i took this in a different direction than really fit with the context we were working in, thought i do hit it with the normal curve part a bit at the bottom. Really wanted to express the dual nature of a concept like standards. The word can raise the hairs on the back of our necks, but without such things we wouldn't get far... This balance plays a big role in my work on creativity, hence my illustrating it in this way.

Visual Bibliographic Analysis


This task involves designing a structure that identifies the theorists, philosophers, practitioners, and any other sources that inform a student’s emerging research identity. The source of the idea is found in thinking about how a bibliography can be visualized as a system of theories and practices that are indexed according to areas of content, ideas, and interests. In other words, the task was to create a referencing circle/network/community, that is content-based (rather than alphabetical). The bibliographic structure is to be presented as a self-contained entity.

Dear friend and artist Andy Malone back in Detroit printed up my piece and made it into a cube for his 2-year old daughter Julia (and infant son Martin) to play with.
