- What location did you visit for your visual research and what did you find?
I visited the medical library and medical stores. I found many related photos, charts, experiments on diabetes and baldness. In the medical store, I found tools for looking at cellular structures and other related tools.
- How did the locations (museum/gallery/etc.) you visited expand/broaden/deepen your understanding of your topic? (this could be visual, contextual, historical, material based, etc.)
I learned a lot more about genes, cells and heritage. I learned how diabetes and baldness cells look like.
- List the symbols, metaphors and visual references you put in your taxonomy and explain how/why they are relevant/important to your topic.
The visual references are the pictures of cellular structure forms that are related to diabetes and baldness. There are some charts and illustrations about how diabetes and baldness form, and the heritage of it. There are also experiments and statistics. I chose these because they are relevant to my research. The cellular structures can be helpful for the visual design, the charts, statistics and experiments can be useful as a background information.
- What did you learn from Monday’s critique about your taxonomy that was new or helpful?
I did not go to the Monday’s class.
