Temporal Modeling

Temporal Modeling

(p.37) 2.1 Temporal Modeling

Johanna Drucker

University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses Temporal Modeling, the first project at SpecLab. This project was designed to test whether humanistic principles could be used in the design and implementation of digital projects, and whether graphical means could serve as a primary mode of knowledge production. Temporal Modeling was built with a team of players that include Bethany Nowviskie, who guided the design process, freelance Flash designer Jim Allman, and designer Petra Michel. The project has demonstrated that a visual theater for knowledge production could create primary information and analysis, not merely serve as its display.

Keywords:   Temporal Modeling, SpecLab, humanistic principles, digital projects, knowledge production, Bethany Nowviskie, Jim Allman, Petra Michel
