Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

This fall, I took the challenge of creating a series of infographic posters for a difficult Physics topic, Transistors. I took on this task because, being a double major in Engineering and Graphic Design, I understand the difficulties students have with the topic, and the positive aspects that visual learning brings to the table. Each poster contains dynamic a color palette with varying balances of the objects shown. The point of this piece is to express a topic that is usually taught analytically, in a more visual way.

Being a visual learner myself, I understand how hard comprehending certain topics in an analytical way can be. Certain physics topics have thus, flown over my head because I just could not grasp the concept without seeing a physical representation of it. My hope is to create a series for a topic where I can now see a physical example of what it is able to create to try and get a better understanding.

The work itself is a series of 3 posters, each representing different forms of electronics and the power that transistors hold. Each separate poster has a varying color palette, main subject, and balance within each separate element. The main text explains how each poster can function by transistors. Combining these three elements is what allows me to get across a message on what these transistors can do.
