Visual design. Social good.

These are reviews that deal with multimodal composition and composing practices in digital spaces. I generally read these works with an eye toward design, aesthetic experience, the senses, and engagement. This is an invitation to add your comments/start a conversation on any of the entries. What do you think about these works? How are you using them? What questions do you have? What answers do you have?

One Response to “Reviews”

  1. dorothysantos

    This is wonderful! Thank you so much for posting this information. I’m citing your work for my research paper. I’m currently a first year graduate student at California College of the Arts in the Visual and Critical Studies program. My research is on programming, coding, and open source culture and their effects on contemporary art. Specifically, I’m reading through your response to the Bruce Sterling essay and really enjoyed and agree with your response. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge and wisdom on the subject matter!
