A year ago I was transfixed by the New York Times’ Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek.
John Branch, the author of the story, has been involved with his New York Times’ colleagues in some new newsgraphics for the 2014 Winter Olympics.
The Giant Slalom with Ted Ligety was produced by Alexandra Garcia, Graham Roberts, Joe Ward, Larry Buchanan, Mike Bostock, Ritvik Menon, George Knowles and Tom Giratikanon.
Other newsgraphics in the series are:
- Halfpipe (Bedel Saget, Graham Roberts, and Catherine Spangler)
- Luge (Mika Gröndahl, Joe Ward, and Alexandra Garcia)
- Short Track (Alexandra Garcia, Mika Gröndahl, Graham Roberts, and Joe Ward)
- Ski Jumping (Joe Ward, Mika Gröndahl, Graham Roberts, and Alexandra Garcia)
- Slopestyle (Mike Bostock, Bedel Saget, and Catherine Spangler)
I am very attracted to these newsgraphics and the teams that produce them. I am particularly interested in how they change our perception.
I am keen to learn more about how these resources cue our attention and trigger learning (as well as aesthetic delight).
