Playing with representation, presentation, and perception: three ways to subvert current visualization techniques.
Miguel Nacenta - University of St. Andrews
Wednesday 12th March, 3pm
Gordon Sq 16-18 Room 101
In this talk I present three recent projects that address different aspects of the visualization pipeline. Fatfonts are a novel hybrid way to represent numbers, by using a special type of digit that turns tables into visualisations. Transmogrification is a technique that allows us to change the presentation of any graphic, and turn any 2D representation into an arbitrary set of other 2D representations with a very flexible touch interface. Finally, I will also present work on representing depth information through Gaze-contingent depth of field.
Miguel Nacenta is a co-founder of the St Andrews Human-Computer Interaction group (SACHI) and a lecturer in human-computer interaction at the School of Computer Science, University of St Andrews. His main expertise is in input and output techniques for displaying and accessing information. His research encompasses the use of multi-touch and multi-display interfaces, the perceptual aspects of display information perception, and information visualization.
UCLIC seminars are on Wednesdays at 3pm during term-time. Please see notices for
