This primer is designed to teach students the interconnected arts of visual communication. This book provides a framework within which to re-examine and revise one's thinking about the basic structure and impact of visual messages. Numerous illustrative examples are employed to clarify the basic elements of design to show how they are used in simple syntactical combinations.

Unterricht wurde lange ausschließlich als Diskurs untersucht, aber jeder Unterricht erfordert auch einen fachbezogenen und didaktischen Umgang mit materiellen Dingen. In dem neuen ZISU-Band fragen die AutorInnen aus der Perspektive erziehungswissenschaftlicher und fachdidaktischer Unterrichtsforschung, wie Dinge im Unterricht genutzt werden, wie sie zu Dingen des Unterrichts werden und sich im Unterricht verändern und welche Bedeutung Dingen bei der Konstituierung von Lernsituationen zukommt.

What does it mean to be visually literate? Does it mean different things in the arts and the sciences? In the West, in Asia, or in developing nations? If we all need to become "visually literate," what does that mean in practical terms? The essays gathered here examine a host of issues surrounding "the visual," exploring national and regional ideas of visuality and charting out new territories of visual literacy that lie far beyond art history, such as law and chemistry. With an afterword by Christopher Crouch, this groundbreaking collection brings together the work of major art and visual studies scholars and critics to explore what impact the new concept of "visual literacy" will have on the traditional field of art history.

Karl Gerstners Arbeit ist ein Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Gestaltung. Eines seiner wichtigsten Werke war "Programme entwerfen," das hier in einer Neuauflage der Originalpublikation von 1964 erscheint. In vier Essays stellt der Autor die Grundlagen seiner gestalterischen Methode dar. Die damals gezeigte Methode zum Entwerfen zeigt keine Rezepte, sondern ein Modell fA1/4r das Entwerfen im beginnenden Computerzeitalter. Dass Buch liefert aber auch heute noch anwendbare Denkmodelle, allerdings keine LAsungen, kein richtig oder falsch, nichts Absolutes - sondern Grundlegendes ist hier auf innovative, in die zukunftweisende Art erarbeitet. Gerade vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Entwicklungen im Computational Design, das uns die MAglichkeit von programmierter Gestaltung vorhAlt, gewinnt dieses Buch an Spannung und AktualitAt. Die vielen Beispiele aus Grafik und Produktdesign, Musik, Architektur und Kunst regen dazu an, das Gezeigte weiterzudenken und in die eigene Arbeit zu integrieren.

Recording your ideas and observations primarily in pictures instead of words can help you become more creative and constructive on the job, no matter what your level of artistic ability. This show-by-example sourcebook clearly illustrates proven methods and procedures for keeping a highly useful visual notebook. Visual Notes for Architects and Designers demonstrates how to make rapid, notational sketches that serve as visual records for future reference, as well as improve understanding and facilitate the development of ideas. It shows you how to expand your knowledge of a subject beyond what is gained through observation or verbal representation alone. You gain access to simple techniques for collecting, analyzing, and applying information. Crowe and Laseau examine the relationship between note-taking, visualization, and creativity. They give practical guidance on how to develop: * Visual acuity--the ability to see more in what you experience * Visual literacy--expressing yourself clearly and accurately with sketches * Graphic analysis--using sketches to analyze observations Numerous examples demonstrate some of the many uses of visual notes. They help you develop a keener awareness of environments, solve design problems, and even get more out of lectures and presentations. The authors also discuss types of notebooks suitable for taking visual notes. If you want to develop your perceptual and creative skills to their utmost, you will want to follow the strategies outlined in Visual Notes for Architects and Designers. It is a valuable guide for architects, landscape architects, designers, and anyone interested in recording experience in sketch form.

American Icons

The Genesis of a National Visual Language

Despite the work that has been done on the power of visual communication in general, and about the social influence of television in particular, television’s relationship with reality is still something of a black box. Even today, the convention that the screen functions as a window on reality structures much of the production and reception of televisual narratives. But as reality ought to become history at one point, what are we to do with such windows on the past? Developing and applying a highly innovative approach to the modern picture, American Icons sets out to expose the historicity of icons, to reframe the history of the screen and to dissect the visual core of a medium that is still so poorly understood. Dismantling the aura of apparently timeless icons and past spectacles with their seductive power to attract the eye, this book offers new ways of seeing the mechanisms at work in our modern pictorial culture.

No Sense of Place

The Impact of Electronic Media on Social Behavior

How have changes in media affected our everyday experience, behavior, and sense of identity? Such questions have generated endless arguments and speculations, but no thinker has addressed the issue with such force and originality as Joshua Meyrowitz in No Sense of Place. Advancing a daring and sophisticated theory, Meyrowitz shows how television and other electronic media have created new social situations that are no longer shaped by where we are or who is "with" us. While other media experts have limited the debate to message content, Meyrowitz focuses on the ways in which changes in media rearrange "who knows what about whom" and "who knows what compared to whom," making it impossible for us to behave with each other in traditional ways. No Sense of Place explains how the electronic landscape has encouraged the development of: -More adultlike children and more childlike adults; -More career-oriented women and more family-oriented men; and -Leaders who try to act more like the "person next door" and real neighbors who want to have a greater say in local, national, and international affairs. The dramatic changes fostered by electronic media, notes Meyrowitz, are neither entirely good nor entirely bad. In some ways, we are returning to older, pre-literate forms of social behavior, becoming "hunters and gatherers of an information age." In other ways, we are rushing forward into a new social world. New media have helped to liberate many people from restrictive, place-defined roles, but the resulting heightened expectations have also led to new social tensions and frustrations. Once taken-for-granted behaviors are now subject to constant debate and negotiation. The book richly explicates the quadruple pun in its title: Changes in media transform how we sense information and how we make sense of our physical and social places in the world.
