The ability of graphics and illustration to convey complex information makes them important elements of the communication, whether it’s about representing architecture or the human brain.
Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram explored its ability to convey complex information with the installation Terapixel Graphics for CeBit: a 3.000 square meter, floor-to-ceiling terapixel graphic makes manifest the largesse of Big Data, the theme of this year’s CODE_n, whilst Alberto Cairo has the ability to turn datajournalism into an eager and absorbing attempt to make sense of the deluge of information that overwhelms us today.

Illustration tell us the world with Illustrated Markets, the Chicago-based design brand ODLCO’s Kickstarter campaign, with illustrator Jingyao Guo, to produce a series of posters portraying open air markets around the world.

The relationship between illustration and game is the concept of the exhibition design by Pedro Cabrito and Isabel Diniz for Ilustrarte 2014, that explores the formal features of the famous colorful toy blocks, as well as the theme of Edward del Rosario and Asuka Ohsawa “It’s All Fun and Games”, where they examine the idea of play from perspectives of psychology, popular culture, and personal history.

Illustration also has a dreamlike dimension: Philip Jodidio has chosen Patrick Hruby’s drawings to represent tree houses all over the world in his book “Tree Houses. Fairy Tale Castles in the Air” and Blank Space organized the Fairy Tales contest, the first architecture storytelling competition.
