Visualization and Narrative: A themed issue of Reconstruction

Reconstruction: Studies in Contemporary Culture
<reconstruction.eserver.org> is soliciting papers for a special themed
issue on visualisation and narrative--with special reference to
filmmaking, information design, and computing.

Visualisation consists of the visual representation and analysis of
processes over time, in dynamically changing information spaces.

As filmmaking has moved to digital formats in writing screenplays,
making images and sounds and editing and manipulating those images,
all filmmaking processes are actually or potentially subject to
visualisation.
