Visualizing Perspectives for Creative Collaboration

Dove, G. (2012). Visualizing Perspectives for Creative Collaboration. Paper presented at the Designing Interactive Systems (DIS 2012), 11 - 15 Jun 2012, Newcastle, UK.


Every day, more and more data is collected, and we are increasingly being provided with open access to it. The hope is that this will be the driving force behind a wave of innovative new businesses that are able to lead us out of our current financial problems and give rise to a generation of better informed, active consumers who will engage with the kind of changes necessary to reduce global warming and prevent a pensions crisis. However it is not enough to simply release this data, people must also be given the tools to understand and engage with it creatively. The research presented here draws together current approaches from data visualization, creativity research and human-computer interaction to provide a framework in which personal data stories can be used to present a range of perspectives and support collaboration between people with different experiences and varying levels of domain expertise.
