HONR 239D The Language of Visual Communication
Tuesday/Thursday, 9:30-10:45 a.m.
Dr. Gene Weiss, College of Arts and Humanities
How do we know the meaning of what we see? In today's society we are bombarded by images presented by television, film, and photography. There is hardly a human activity that does not make use of images as a means of communicating. How are we to ascertain how these images function without developing the critical capacity to understand how the visual media communicate? Using the principles of visual perception and the process of exploring, isolating, and organizing a subject, we can become visually literate.
Assignments will include several visualization projects, short bi-weekly papers, and a final examination.
