After grinding to get a first draft finished before spring break I used spring break to apply to some internships, so that I could focus on capstone when I returned.
I did some material experimentations for my data visualizations and ultimately came to terms with ditching the use of paint or oil pastel. Oil pastels did not look any different than children’s crayons when I made simple lines. Paint, while I could make interesting marks they did not incorporate well with the text.
This left me with my final material option— cut paper. I used the work of Joseph Albers and Lester Beale for inspiration.
