Status at CP

The six-corner intersection of art, science, and math is sadly underpopulated, but visitors to this fascinating neighborhood are always treated to something great, be it fractals or Daina Taimina's crocheted models of the universe or Edward Tufte's research on Information Graphics. Claire Ironside and Angela Iarocci are illustration and graphic design professors (respectively) who collaborate on data visualization projects which draw on the multiple themes of sustainability, activism and social engagement. This pair of prints features a punnet square and network diagram examining the albino squirrel. One poster features explanatory text and a family tree, while the second poster illustrates 20,000 squirrels, one of which is white, a bold depiction of the odds of seeing a white squirrel in nature. The odds of a Biology-Graphic Design double major are just about the same.
