I’m studying for my Computer Science class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
For this assignment, you are to construct a visual story of yourself, through information.
You have a lot of leeway with this assignment, but I want you to come up with an interesting and informative way to tell someone something about yourself, or to somehow track a particular characteristic or event. What is important, what is not? How does it relate to other things? If you can describe yourself in a paragraph, how would you describe yourself in a visual? Can you pick out a little piece of your experience of life and use graphical structure to tell this story, and even learn from it?
Think of this as building something like a resumé (meaning: “summary”) or curriculum vitae (“story of life”), but constructed through graphical structures rather than words, and topically about something broader than your skills and job history. This visual should investigate and show something about yourself that is interesting, unique, and perhaps quirky.
You can, and likely will, choose to concentrate on a particular area or subset of yourself rather than trying to incorporate everything, but you should try to make a coherent point, statement, or story with this visual. Incorporate as much or as little as you want.
This visual can be based on real data, if you have it, or it can be based on pseudo-data — approximations and an organizational sense, even if there is not true “data” to back it up. The point is rather to come up with a way to visually arrange, organize, and communicate.
You can choose to organize your graphic through some mechanism of time, space, flow, connection, overlap, impact, interest, happiness,
