- Public Conversation of Science
How the public conversation of science and technology are changing over time
- This was the first time I've ever created an infographic, and understanding how to filter data to create something that has the right balance between good aesthetics that will attract, and good, interesting information that will compell the reader into wanting to find out more about the topic covered.
The emphasis of this infographic is to provide a coherent visual for the reader to follow the rise and fall of conversations on different subjects within science; Nuclear, Space, or Biotechnological Sciences, in parallel to significant events on the historical timeline that would have created the increase in conversation and interest.
The Scientist Stereotypes characters were created in response to the development of technology over time in sciences, in conjunction to data gathered of how the public perceived scientists as a result of news coverage over time.
Many thanks to Dr Martin Bauer of the Institute of Social Psychology and Methodology Institute at the London School of Economics for the collaboration and providing data for this Infographic.
