OverviewThis contextual studies course examines contemporary theories and practices relating to data and information visualisation and data rendering, in various forms, as applied in relation to digital media, new media arts, art, design and processes and practices at the nexus of art and science. It shows how creative practices, pre and post-digital, critically engage with data and information.The course examines how data and information are pervasive and underwrite media, art and design practices, and how information and data are being manipulated in areas including computer generated imagery (CGI); visual, sonic and tactile renderings such as sound recording and 3D printing; and in digital cinema and photography. It examines how processes that involve working with data and information can inherit conventions from other disciplines that impact on creative outputs.
