Step 1: Pick an icon and think about its meaning and limitations. How can the icon be improved through a feminist lens? Step 2: Drawing on feminist data visualization principles, iteratively redesign the icon. Keep your sketches and drafts.Step 3: Reflect on your designs in writing and annotate your sketches!Step 4: Prepare to share your process and designs with the broader group!

School, home

01:57:53
fuel…
Mae Morton-Dutton
01:57:56
Those focusing on people and animals
RJ Ramey (he/him)
01:58:07
Once I saw Zoo, I knew I wanted to do that one, to think about issues of power.
Julia Manek (she/her)
01:58:36
woah.
Nathan Swanson
01:59:30
the monument phallus looked like it needed pulled down through direct action
Aparna Parikh (she/her)
01:59:32
have to leave now, thanks for a lovely workshop! and thanks all for the great icon interventions
Julia Manek (she/her)
01:59:42
in a way it is stunning that icons are though from the consumer… never from the "source" or from the "moment of success" (university)… etc.
Sarah Carnaroli (she/her)
01:59:42
residential community and village, so difficult to universalize this experience, icon privileges ownership
Lina G. Belaunzarán
01:59:50
Sports icons always represents men.
Mae Morton-Dutton
02:00:23
I find the icon for natural to be quite interesting. In what cases would something be signified as natural versus cultural or something else?
Vivian Rodriguez (she/her)
02:00:46
I love the zoo re-imagined as a sad animal behind bars because it is makes power relationships very clear at a glance
Olivia Mason
02:01:09
Many of them focus on the material aspects. We need to get better at representing things we can’t see
Jo (she/her/ella)
02:01:22
I thought about "home" and all the different types of "homes" we have. Ended up with a representation of knickers hanging on a washing line from the Grace Nichols poem "wherever I hang me knickers - that's my home."
Kathia Arjona
02:02:40
I wanted to draw a complete female empowered body for monument but it was very ugly, so I ended up just with a face, and I think it can be represented in an abstract way, something different from a folic figure, other representations of person and things that can be preserved as monuments…
Kathia Arjona
02:02:57
Fallió figure, sorry
Kathia Arjona
02:03:03
falic
Kathia Arjona
02:03:34
Is tha tcorrect? Jaja sorry if my English is far from correct
Gabriela FennerS
02:04:10
It´s difficult to be simple and at the same time keeping diversity! I draw the city icon..
Kar Helena
02:04:15
I shared an icon about a collection point for menstrual blood, because its still a taboo subject, and recently in Mexico City we placed a care point in an urban garden.
Kathia Arjona
02:04:27
phallic!
Kar Helena
02:04:30
´Holaa
Gabriela FennerS
02:04:45
now I have to go. Thank you so mucho for this interresting reflections and exercise!
Tesla DuBois
02:04:46
I tried recently to find a symbol for recreation site and had a hard time coming up with anything I liked. Any ideas about what it could be?
Tesla DuBois
02:05:33
It was general recreation sites listed by the City of Philadelphia for a map I was making for the School District of Philadelphia
Tesla DuBois
02:05:44
I didn’t have much more information to go off of.
Rebecca Stoner LaFountain
02:06:29

Lina G. Belaunzarán
02:19:16
