Data Sensorium Kick-Off Colloquium

Imagine manipulating a three dimensional animation of a dataset—stretching it with a gesture, tilting and twisting it, seeing it from all sides, erasing unwanted information, and foregrounding particular bits of data.

Imagine further—you can simultaneously hear the data transformation in three-dimensional audio. In this imagination, data is immersive, offering information concurrently to all of your senses—visual, aural, and haptic.

This experience of data, drawing on interactive multidimensional graphics and sound, would be able to offer the possibility of spontaneous leaps in cognition, emphasizing new associations and understandings, and drawing attention to previously invisible relationships. This is the ultimate goal of the Data Sensorium.
