The Pale Dot: Articulating Science with Design

Date: 03/27/2014

Time: 6:00 PM

Location: 33 McNeal Hall

Cost: Free

Description:

This talk will examine the interdisciplinary curriculums that give science and design majors the opportunity to collaborate in a studio environment and rethink how scientific knowledge is communicated to the public. These classrooms encourage students to critique the visual conventions found in science textbooks, while redefining design as a "transparent" craft rather than a spectacle of stylistic trends. Whether in the form of a poster, book, web site, or mobile app, the outcomes from these constructive endeavors give shape to the on-going dialogue between scientists and designers.

About the speaker:
Eugene Park is the newest member of our graphic design faculty, specializing in typography, science, interaction and information design. He earned an MFA in graphic design at the Rhode Island School of Design.
