VisWeek 2012 Art Show

VisWeek 2012 Art Show

VisWeek is a computer science conference. It’s filled to the brim with computer scientists talking about their newest algorithms to do principal component analysis for dimension reduction, their newest fuzzy clustering techniques, or their signature generation for the interactive analysis of high dimensional data. Much of this work contains intense math, complex data structures, and finely tuned software architectures.

Occasionally, though, these computer scientists leave their analytical bubbles to do something creative for the sake of doing something creative. The VisWeek 2012 art show puts some of this work on display. Here’s some of it.

The work Brittany Nelson has at VisWeek is inspired by digital gradient generation tools, however she has created the same gradients using physical processes in the dark room.

Biology and Bioinformatics have recently seen an explosion of visualization applications, but many have been designed by researchers without any expertise in visualization. This results in many visualizations that aren’t as efficient as possible, or even misleading to the people using... keep reading
