Visualization Matrix

Arranged in a matrix, the visualizations of the food data are structured from Simple to Complex [Axis 1 Left to Right] and Literal to Abstract [Axis 2 Top to Bottom].

 

This matrix was installed as part of the thesis presentation. Users are encouraged to document their interaction with the matrix using an "Experience Card" tracking which one they saw first, looked at the longest, thought was the most effective and thought was the least effective.

 

The idea of the matrix is create a live space for comparison and contrast of the different methods of visualization. When viewed one at a time, the human memory is unable to recall enough data from previous images to create a truly effective comparison.

 

Each image has a note attached that links to the full size version of that visualization. If they are driving you crazy, hover anywhere off of the image and lines disappear, or click on the image to go into another view with no notes. See it super large scale by viewing other sizes.
