Just a little post to link to an interesting exhibition video about the convergence of art, design and science and a computer game - Making climate change accessible and popular. The exhibition shown in the video demonstrates the use of Infographics and Sonification. It's about not just what we say, and how we say it, but also the way the typesetting occurs to emphasize aspects of what you are communicating.
The aim of the computer game is to stop New York from flooding. Top stuff!
But let's agree that anything visually enhancing - in the days of the internet and computer games, works exceedingly well in conjunction with the written word:
Andrew Ioannidis, musician and artist extraordinaire has now launched his two new websites, and they are well worth a visit!
This is a man whose talents and inspiration know no bounds musically and artistically. My favourites of his songs are: 'This is Your Day' from the Mercury album which I listen to several times a week.
He wrote a song Environmental Take Over Bid which was drawn from some poetry I wrote about the latest backyard craze, the outdoor room and how people forget how our buzzy little friends, and their habitats, are affected by all that building up and out! You can go to the blog page to see the lyrics and listen to this.
Here is a link to the site. Been spending some time getting the voice content ready for the You Tube video for the Eco Creativity exhibition we did back in Feb 013 so as usual my attention to this blog has been a bit remiss to say the least.
