Text and image: Exploring cognition

This is a series of provocations and discussions on the influence of different types of media on our understanding of ideas and the decisions we make, seeking to address the following:

  • What are the limits of mediated human perception and cognition?
  • How do different modes of representation inform perception?
  • How can we create new ways of thinking through digital design?

The series is co-organised by Nick Holliman and Jenny Richards.
