Abstract

The metaphorical relationship between sight and knowledge has long been recognized: the double-entendre of “illumination” promises both light and understanding; “I see” signifies that one “gets it” intellectually. This conversation between R. Luke DuBois and Anne Collins Goodyear addresses how data accrues meaning through pictorial structures that represent it. An artist, DuBois has consistently played with conventions for depicting information visually, revealing the intersections between data and desire they represent. Reexamining the interfaces through which we view the world, DuBois and Goodyear consider what our filters threaten to hide.

La relation métaphorique entre la vue et la connaissance a longtemps été reconnue: le double-sens de «l'illumination» promet la lumière et la compréhension. Cette conversation entre R. Luke DuBois et Anne Collins Goodyear traite de la façon dont les données accumulent le sens à travers les structures picturales qui le représentent. L’artiste, DuBois a toujours joué avec les conventions pour représenter l'information visuellement, révélant les intersections entre les données et le désir qu'ils représentent. Reexaminant les interfaces par lesquelles nous regardons le monde, DuBois et Goodyear considèrent ce que nos filtres menacent de cacher.
