Image and Meaning
(IM) events began in 2001 by Felice Frankel in MIT’s Envisioning Science Project. The purpose of the IM workshops was to help scientists, writers and visual communicators develop and share improved methods of communicating scientific concepts and technical information through images and visual representations. The goal was to enhance the level of discourse within the scientific community, among teachers and students, and those who communicate with the public. Several conferences and workshops were held around the country from 2001-2005.
