The Information Landscapes project, developed by Cooper with her students and colleagues at MIT’s Visual Language Workshop, explored what at the time were radical possibilities for digital graphic design. The VLW, which Cooper founded in 1974, was one of the most fertile creative environments in the growing field of interactive design and data visualization. The project was a significant departure from the pie charts and other traditional methods of data depiction that were being used at the time: a graphical interface for creating dynamic 3D visualizations of complex real-time financial, statistical, and spatial information.
