Clara McClenon: Describing Space

Mc Clenon Describing Space small 1

Clara McClenons exhibit Describing Space: Materials from a creative research trip in Kyoto will be on view at the Stephen S. Clark Library through October 11, 2013. The exhibit integrates 19th century Japanese maps from the library’s collection with the artist’s sketches and photographs in a discussion of how the distinct characteristics of Japanese cartography can inform the way we think about mapping and information visualization. Clara McClenon is currently pursuing the Master of Fine Arts/​Master of Information Science dual-degree program in the School of Information and the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan. Building on her background in research science, Clara approaches art and data visualization as forms of experimentation and exploration. Her creative practice deals with processes of information gathering and synthesis that create meaning, particularly concerning a sense of place.
