Our prototype for graph sonification was presented on September 26 at the First Conference of the International Association for Cognitive Semiotics (IACS 2014) in Lund, Sweden. You can follow this link to play around with a slightly updated copy of the prototype that we presented.
Other than a couple of bug fixes and a couple of adaptations to make it work under WordPress, this is the same as what was presented at Lund. It will need the full browser window, and as it uses WebAudioAPI it does require a reasonably recent Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
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.
