Our final reading assignment for the semester will be two short articles, both from Graphic Design Theory. Here are the PDFs:
Jessica Helfand, Dematerialization of Screen Space (2001): Helfand_ScreenSpace
Lev Manovich, Import/Export, or Design Workflow and Contemporary Aesthetics (2008): Manovich_ImportExport
This week’s writing will not be a direct response to the readings. Instead, the written portion of this week’s assignment will be to post (1) “sketches” of your poster and (2) a working bibliography.
You can interpret sketches literally and/or loosely; include actual drawings, outlines of material, or brainstorm clouds of related ideas. The bibliography can include relevant assigned readings, but it must also include at least a few outside sources.
Please also feel free to email me with any project-related questions that might come up through the week.
