Infographics are graphic visual representations of data and information. They come in extremely handy when you need to explain complex information, numbers or data rather quickly and effectively. Infographics are used worldwide from magazines to metro stations. A great infographic can render complicated information easily understandable and engrossing. However, infographics can be pretty hard to design since you have to gather together a lot of information and make it look good.

In a recent interview[1] Jean Baudrillard states that the Wachowski Brothers had misapplied his theory of simulacra and simulation in The Matrix, as they embody the idea of the virtual as a concrete reality and carry it over to “visible phantasms”. What Baudrillard opposes to in the application of the distinction between real and virtual in the Matrix series is that “the brand-new problem of the simulation is mistaken with the very classic problem of the illusion, already mentioned by Plato”.

Jones Paul Jones (University of New South Wales, Australia) Abstract: This article's prime aim is to provide an exegesis of Raymond Williams's neglected "mature" theorization of means of communication. Much of this aspect of his cultural materialism is articulated as a critique of Marshall McLuhan. Williams attempts to recover and develop what he saw as the lost early promise of McLuhan's work. The article thus takes the form of an account of the complex relationship between the two authors' projects from their common origins in English literary criticism through to Williams's rejection of McLuhan's proto-postmodern avant-gardism. The normative sociological typologization of means of communication offered by Williams is argued to be directly relevant to contemporary research.

Introduction After three thousand years of explosion, by means of fragmentary and mechanical technologies, the Western world is imploding. During the mechanical ages we had extended our bodies in space.

Visual Studies A la suite de la sémiologie des années 1970, se sont développées aux Etats-Unis dans les années 1980 les "Visual Studies", tandis que l'histoire se penchait enfin en France sur les sources iconographiques. Voulant donner une analyse globale des constructions visuelles, les Visual Studies mêlent l'art du Quattrocento, l'affiche ou les tags. Elles sont ainsi significatives d'un grand mouvement de décontextualisation. A l'heure d'Internet et de l'accumulation indifférenciée sur écran, voici donc un symptôme. Sous peine de perte totale des repères et de confusion généralisée, une telle démarche nécessite d'abord d'avoir acquis des bases solides en histoire mondiale du visuel. William J. Visual Studies

Compartiremos una serie de lecturas para aproximarnos a los llamados “estudios visuales”, área alternativa a la historia del arte y a los estudios culturales, que demanda para sí un objeto de estudio y una metodología de abordaje propios. Intentaremos, en primer lugar, analizar los factores sociales, culturales, artísticos y académicos-institucionales que posibilitaron su emergencia. Luego, trataremos los enfoques y debates teóricos suscitados en torno a los estudios visuales. Objetivos: 1.

Issue No. 16 2008 — Democracy Under Fire: the uses and abuses of democracy in the public sphere Judith Butler, Gender, Radical Democracy: What’s Lacking? By Julie MacKenzie While Judith Butler may be recognised foremost as a theorist of gender, what is less often remarked upon is that Butler’s work on gender is firmly located within a “radical democratic” politics, and indeed that it is in the name of a notion of radical democracy that Butler’s work proceeds.

Intro to Visual Culture Introducing Visual Culture: Ways of Looking at All Things Visual Emergence of a new paradigm for studying all forms of visual culture as parts of a cross-media system Some Key Points to Consider "Visual Culture" studies recognizes the predominance of visual forms of media, communication, and information in the postmodern world. Has there been a social and cultural shift to the visual, over against the verbal and textual, in the past 50 years, and has it been accelerating in the past 10 or 20 years? Or are our written, textual, and visual systems continuing an ongoing reconfiguration in a new (recognizable) phase?
