Visualization: the Medium (Response)

With visualization, it is important to remember what you are trying to communicate. I am a more right brained thinker which means I am more creative and less analytical in my thought processes, so naturally I was drawn to the artistic side of data, specifically the data art. I like the idea that data doesn’t always have to look boring like one would naturally assume. It can be expressive and interesting. The chapter says that it is hard to explain exactly what data art is, but “the work is often less about decision making and more about a relationship to the numbers—or rather what they represent—to experience data.” I would like to think that I agree with this. I would much rather experience the data than just look at it and not feel anything at all.
