Artifact Based Rendering: VR Visualization by Hand
2020-10-26T18:00:00Z – 2020-10-26T21:30:00Z
Artifact-Based Rendering (ABR) is a new approach to designing immersive data-driven visualizations entirely from physical materials. Introduced in last year’s technical program, the theory behind ABR is that harnessing the richness of nature and traditional artistic materials can help us create more effective data-driven visualizations by expanding the visual language available to us in digital space. Participants will arrive to see tables with clay, paints, drawing materials and more. The tutorial consists of four sections: 1. introducing ABR concepts and tools, 2. active physical crafting and then digitizing artifacts, and 3. attaching the artifacts to example datasets, and 4. a VR/slideshow presentation of the visualizations created and reflections on the experience and future potential.
