Embodying Data pp 115-138 | Cite as




This book focuses on investigating a possible new aesthetic approach to data visualization through gesture-based gaming technology, rather than the conventional models of producing functional, visual understandings of data. In this book, data visualization is defined as the visual representation of numeric data, which is the foundation for a data-based creative practice.
