Spotlight: Graphic Design

School of Art 4D and graphic design professor Evan Meaney, along with the Electrical Engineering & Computer Science department’s Amy Szczepanski, have created an app that converts data into images. Specifically, they are converting works of literature (the works of William Shakespeare, Moby Dick, and Frankenstein to name a few) into various bands of color, creating abstract pictures.

The amazing development is covered by the Knoxville News-Sentinel’s online edition, and the full article can be read here.
