The "resource list" sheet (click on tab below) is an evolving sheet of selected organizations, conferences, videos and readings that I've maintained in response to specific requests from students, scientists, and artists interested in learning more about scientific visualization (from illustration to data visualization) and the work I do as a science graphics editor -Jen Christiansen ( Twitter: @ChristiansenJen )

talkDigital Analogues Eyeo Festival, Minneapolis, 2016How does a magazine that covers advances in science and technology illustrate emerging ideas before the technology being described is ubiquitous? Jen Christiansen shares examples of how Scientific American illustrated topics in innovation and information at the dawn of the digital age and beyond: a time during which technological advances in imaging were being reported on before the technology was mainstream enough to produce—or share—the magazine with it.

talkVisualizing Science: Developing Information Graphics for Scientific American Magazine.OpenVisConf, Boston, 2014From its first data-based chart (on the topic of inertia, momentum, and projection) up through to today's web interactives, Scientific American Magazine has been communicating topics in science and technology to non-specialist audiences with the help of graphics since 1845. Jen will walk through the process of developing print, web, and tablet data visualizations for Scientific American, from identifying source datasets, to working with freelance visualizers--with an eye to developing graphics that embrace their skills and style, but still feel at home within the context of a monthly publication (with an established framework and aesthetic identity on paper and online). From initial concept through final production, we'll examine projects such as Jan Willem Tulp's flavor connection network (Sep 2013 issue), and Moritz Stefaner's bee graphic (Dec 2013 issue) from the art director's point of view.
