Ornament and Information

How is information deployed in the interior environments? Throughout history, there are many examples of how information is displayed as key components of the interior design. Examples include the Giotto Saint Francis Frescoes in Assisi Italy, the intarsia of the Gubbio Studiolo, educational wallpapers that display historical scenes, animals, artifacts or the alphabet, to large scale corporate branding and fine artists who engage information to create provocative contemporary art installations. This curated post on Ornament and Information, looks at how different goals impact the visual and physical methods used to incorporate information in the built environment.
