About this Blogsphere:

This blogsphere attempts to capture, catalog and share resources relating to visual perception of information. It is about a world mostly dealing with Physical (Touch, Taste, See/Sight, Smell and Hear) and sometimes Metaphysical (and that is none-of-the-above category). Physical, for instance, touch (e.g., feel, felt, found), look and visualization, is here with an attempt to combine verbal, vocal and visual--to synchronously see, hear, share and do much more. Interestingly, in order to visualize one does not need special skills, competencies, etc. It is all about common sense, especially with human visualizations. In short, "information is in the eye of the beholder." Continue reading much more all-ado-about this Blogosphere

Revisualizing Visual Culture is the sixth volume of xvi Revisualizing Visual Culture. "Revisualizing Visual Culture is recommended for information professionals who are currently navigating the challenges of arts and humanities analysis and display."  (Online Information Review).

"...The collection has a distinctively British emphasis. Many of the contributions to the volume grew out of the Computers and History of Art (CHArt) group, which has been an active force in research on the application of digital technology to visual culture since 1985. While there are references to British projects and cultural institutions, readers will find the problems and ideas articulated relevant and accessible." (Canadian Journal of Information and Library Science )
