Embodied Data: A Reading List

Because of my research into embodied data, I have been hoarding readings on physical data visualizations. In the interests of making it more shareable I will also maintain it here! I am always looking for more materials, so if you know of something I am missing (or if you wrote something I should be awareContinue reading “Embodied Data: A Reading List”

It has been just over a month, so it is time for my next update! For those of you who want to read my introduction to this project you can read it here – “Data Craft: Exploring Projects in Embodied Data.” I spent February reacquainting myself with my dataset, as I hadn’t really interacted withContinue reading “Data Deep Dive: Getting My Ducks in Order”

Data Craft: Exploring Projects in Embodied Data

I’m starting a new project. It is a little weird, I realize some might not think of it as digital humanities (DH) but I do (more on that in a future update). Over the next few months, maybe longer maybe shorter, I am going to be uses quilts to represent the use of color inContinue reading “Data Craft: Exploring Projects in Embodied Data”
