Tonight in ds106 I discussed the implications of visual design as a form of cultural intervention. You can listen to the audio below. Note that the first 22 minutes is housekeeping for ds106, talking about assignments, projects, expectations, etc. From minute 23 on I discuss the design projects pictured in the slides below as well as examples done by the ds106 faithful already this semester. You can browse the visual and design assignments submitted to ds106.us which are mentioned at the end of this discussion here and here.
