Part of our Rewiring Consent: Data Visualization & Social Justice series
In this talk we take a closer look at the approach to visual journalism at The New York Times from the beginning of the decade until now. We will unpack the who, how, and why of the creation of these projects, along with a peek at exclusive behind the scenes and process for some of our most mission-defining visual journalism moments. We will also look back at the Times' first year of experimentation with a fundamentally new platform, Virtual Reality, and a vision for the future.
