Visual Information Exhibit

I designed an exhibit "From Noise to Meaning: How Visual Information Makes Sense" that shows how different types of visual information combine to produce our perceptual experience.

Please note that to view the video properly, it must be downloaded to a computer and played in a media player. Online video streaming relies on compressed video signals that leverage the characteristics of natural images - characteristics that are deliberately removed from most of this video.

The video is available for download here.

The exhibition record for the library is available here.
