Normaal / Mark Henning

„A performative design research that explores how the handshake – a simple social gesture – has become coded with immense nationalistic meaning and examines how our definition of normal influences our suspicions of others.“

One Two Tie My Shoe / Sonia Malpeso

„The aim of this study is to evaluate the role of the physical body within a digital working environment by examining how certain physical motions take on gestural meaning and how these motions translate into the digital gestures that they subsequently create.“

Accelerated Logic / Ryan Gandler


„Printed, laser die-cut orange acrylic stencil containing annotations made by the artist, to page 11 of John Berger’s Ways of Seeing. The annotations select, highlight, as well as censor the still in-print publication. Mirroring the mass production of the available book, the work considers the possible multiplication of a personal perspective through the function of the stencil.“

Anatomy of an AI System / Kate Crawford, Vladan Joler

The Amazon Echo as an anatomical map of human labor, data and planetary resources.

The Shape of History

„But what would it mean if we took a different view of what visualization could do? What would it mean if a visualization was designed to be difficult and abstract? If it was intended to send us back to the original source of the data in order to make sense of the image we encountered? What if the goal of visualization was to allow each person, individually, to interpret the image for herself?

This was the aim of Elizabeth Palmer Peabody, the nineteenth-century writer, editor, and educator. Inspired by a system developed in Poland earlier in the century, she devised a method of translating historical events into shape and color. In her textbook, she explained her desire to appeal to the „mind’s eye“ so that each student could create a personal account of the past.“

Chalktalk / Ken Perlin

„Chalktalk is a digital presentation and communication language in development. Using a blackboard-like interface, it allows a presenter to create and interact with animated digital sketches in order to demonstrate ideas and concepts in the context of a live presentation or conversation.“

Serendipity Engine / Enquiry Machine

„Each of the components of The Serendipity Engine will highlight problems observed by digital theorists, designers and technologists with the way the Web currently works – linguistic barriers, echo chambers – by proposing one vision of how the technology can be re-tooled to increase serendipitous encounters.“
„[…] the aim is to render visible other factors that could produce more inclusive digital technologies that better-represent being human in code.“
“[…] render visible the labour of knowledge making.”

Erick Beltran

Uses diagrams to map subjective and „non-expert“ forms of knowledge.

The use of a diagram enables us to create a new way of relating to the unknown, of unfolding the dynamics of orientation in the world.

Alexander Gerner in „Diagrammatic Thinking“ in „Atlas of Transformation“

Visual Proof


1 + 3 + 5 + … + (2n − 1) = n^2

Diagrams and their potential to make mathematical relations evidently visible, to proof them solely (previous knowledge assumed) by visual means.

Videorative Portrait / Sergio Albaic

Tool for drawing with tagged video content to create a dynamic networked image.

http://www.sergioalbiac.com/videorative-portrait-post/

Jorinde Voigt

Opulent drawings in visual rhetoric of diagrams. Exhausting examination of diagrams and the display of complexities, expression of personal experiences. She talks about it as philosophic-cognitive and at the same time bodily-intensive activity but not mainly aesthetic. Website with a lot of works and good texts.

http://jorindevoigt.com/

Diagramme / Marcus Steinweg

Artistic diagrams in reference to philosophical topics. Aesthetic of structure and diagrams that should not create the impression of clarity.

A living man declared dead… / Taryn Simon

Documentary photo series, each consisting of a narrative text, a diagrammatic layout of the photographs and additional visual artifacts, creating a very graphical and contemplative appearance.
