For the flow visualization project that I serve as Co-PI on with Dr. David Steinman at the University of Toronto, below is our entry for the 2014 NSF Science Visualization Challenge (illustration category).
This was another candidate option:
Peter Coppin, Max Julian, Kristian Valen-Sendstad, and David Steinman.
Our research on applying caricature to blood flow visualization will be presented at the World Congress of Biomechanics in Boston this week. Review a preview of the poster.
We will be presenting three projects at the First Conference of the International Association for Cognitive Semiotics (IACS-2014) that will be held in September 25-27, at Lund University:
- Progress toward translating ‘visual’ graphics into sound to produce more accessible interfaces (with implications for the picture perception debate).
- An Embodied Cognition Approach to Distinguishing Pictures, Diagram, and Sentences to Inform Design.
- ‘Perceptually optimizing’ depictions of blood flow dynamics via caricature, sequential art, and 20th century futurism.
