Data analysis and visualization are crucial tools in today’s society, and digital representations have steadily become the default. Yet, more and more often, we find that citizen scientists, environmental activists, and forensic amateurs are using analog methods to present evidence of pollution, climate change, and the spread of disinformation. In his illuminating book, “Autographic Design: The Matter of Data in a Self-Inscribing,” author Dietmar Offenhuber presents a model for these practices, a model to make data generation accountable: autographic design.

Join us on January 23rd from 12 pm – 2 pm in the Center for Design for a book event featuring author Dietmar Offenhuber, Paolo Ciuccarelli, and MIT Press. Discounted copies of the book will be available for purchase at the NU Bookstore. Find out more about the book here.

Dietmar Offenhuber is an Associate Professor and Chair of the department of Art + Design at Northeastern Universitywith a secondary appointment in the school of Public Policy. Paolo Ciuccarelli is an Architect and Communication Designer as well as a Professor of Design at Northeastern University. This upcoming event will include a presentation of the book by author Dietmar Offenhuber, a conversation between Paolo and Dietmar, a Q&A, and book signing. Food will also be provided.
