If you are interested in Data as Art, you must complete a survey. The survey is administered in Slideroom, through the SAIC class, which is referred to as Data Viz Collaborative Fall 2017 Application. First you will need to create a Slideroom account. There are two questions that ask for your SAIC ID and SAIC email- please type N/A as the response. You will also be asked to upload 3-5 examples of your work. The link below will take you to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) website and the application created for this course: Data as Art survey


Led by faculty based at both the School of the Art Institute Chicago (SAIC) and Northwestern University. Students will establish a critical dialogue about information visualization across multiple disciplines, and engage in collaborative research on information visualization using existing data sets.
