Christiane Keller created an incredibly rich environment where people can interact with information as if it were present in space:

dataMorphose is an interactive installation which projects data into real space and visualizes it three-dimensionally. Information is represented by spanned and moving sails directly in the room. Thus abstract and virtual data becomes real and tangible. As the user takes new positions and perspectives, he can experience a completely novel and sensual perception of data. Three spatial displays visualize statistical data, web activities and the current time. The coding and procurement of data is visualized by the tension of the canvas, the pace of movement, the position of the canvas and the change of their shape.

    As an art installation, I really love this – it’s so abstract that it looks like completely random positioning and motion.

    As a tool for data visualisation, I hate it – it’s so abstract that it looks like completely random positioning and motion.

    Quoth the maker:
    “The user first has to learn this language to understand the visualization. However, it’s both easy to understand and intuitive.”.

    Quoth myself:
    “Nuh-uuh!”
