Visual Messages: Information through Technology Communications
Brian Carpenter (Department of Art - Lecturer) and Roy Schneider (Manager, Medical Illustration - UT IISC) presented a pre-IVLA Conference lecture in the TMA Little Theater. Their talk focused on how technologies increase an individual’s ability not only to expand their visual messaging, but also to develop and create fundamental programing skills that are necessary for communication through these technologies that expand the potential and possibilities of the creative process. Together Schneider and Carpenter took the audience from traditional drawing tools, through visual interpretation of IKEA instructions, to the artwork of R. Luke Dubois, whose work challenges the very nature of art and technology.
Students from the Department of Art, the Toledo School for the Arts and the College of Engineering began work on a large-scale project last spring. Under the direction of Arturo Rodriguez, the project has progressed from ideation to concept execution. The next phase will be production, with students screenprinting the 158' wall art, followed by the installation process. The wall is being designed through the generous sponsorship of UT donors, Tom and Betsy Brady. The Bradys have played an active role in the project, bringing their ideas to fruition through the wall mural, as students researched the linkage between art and engineering/engineering and art.
