The team had the pleasure of meeting up with Trevor Hogan, CIT whose deep knowledge around Data Physicalisation took the team to a new place. We are now thinking beyond literal data representation and to the visitor’s perception and how we might build an experience that will enable/ empower the visitor to ‘feel’ the message and the deeper data insight. The conversation was extremely inspiring and covered a lot of interesting ground such as literal and lateral representation of data, cross modality, multi modality, haptic feedback, vibration, sonic feedback and collaborative effort. The concept of being ‘so near ye so far’ came up… and the team will need to spend a few days absorbing all this rich thinking. Thank you Trevor for such a stimulating discussion.
Thank you to everyone that worked on the DAPTEC Flat Holm project and to all the kids from Mount Stuart primary school, Cardiff that helped us test the exhibit.
