This week, I read Johanna Drucker’s Graphesis: Visual Forms of Knowledge Production. Her perspective on visual epistemologies and the role of graphic languages in humanistic fields accounting for interpretation and qualitative judgement struck a chord with me right away.

We had Wes Goatley speak to us about Critical Data Aesthetics and questioning the beauty and neutrality of data. He shed some light on ways data is given form, the importance of highlighting absences, and allowing for multiple perspectives.

I've also been considering how my own data visualisation process looks like. I sketched out the stages and wrote about it.

We looked at storytelling and applying editorial thinking to our work by combining data, context and narrative. Continuing to work with plastics data, I am exploring different editorial angles.
