21 Examples of 'Real Life' Physical Infographics

21 Examples of 'Real Life' Physical Infographics | Digital Scholarship and Library Technology | Scoop.it

Real life data visualization is to be an upcoming trend, called physical infographics or real world visualization. They visualize data with real objects, often combined with typography.

Real Life Infographics are different than other inforgraphics in that they rely much more on photographs instead of a purely digital medium. Moving away from the Everthing-Is-Possible-Unicorn-Utopia of Illustrator is an interesting limitation, as well as a simplifying one. As designers we like to come up with creative ways to display information that will still blow your mind, despite any technical limitations. The real world isn't perfect, and therefore it may not be as accurate as abstract shapes like graph bars. Even though these visualizations still strive for accuracy, you will notice that the context of these graphics will become much more important than precision.

What are the differentiations and intersections of media studies and the digital humanities? | The answer is nostalgia

What are the differentiations and intersections of media studies and the digital humanities? | The answer is nostalgia | Digital Scholarship and Library Technology | Scoop.it

I worry that the answer is nostalgia. 

Why?  Justified by the oft-repeated, but rarely substantiated claim that the humanities is undergoing a crisis, digital humanities constructs the high technology of the present moment in much the same way as proponents of the now largely-forgotten field of new media —as a shift in the means of production that is synonymous in its historical and cultural implications to the introduction of the printing press.  The crucial difference, though, is that for proponents of new media, this technological determinism is almost always symptomatic of a larger positivism.  Convinced that society is in the throes of a far reaching “information revolution,” they construct computers and the various innovations that computers enable as a means of remedying, and, ultimately, transcending the inherent limitations of human subjectivity.

 By contrast, digital humanists imagine computers and the innovations they enable as a means of returning to and thereby recovering the types of performances that, in various formulations, they celebrate as embodying human subjectivity in the ideal.  Fascinated with the potential of digital technologies to re-imagine what they construct as great or valuable works, they turn to e-editions and digital archives not as a means of remedying the limitations of human subjectivity but of perfecting it: of teaching a generation of born digital subjects how to appreciate the timeless values manifested in classic (analog) works of art and literature.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, April 16, 1:21 PM

This passage struck me: "We desperately need a discipline whose sole purpose is to investigate, experiment, and create meanings for this new electronic world of information. That is the role of the digital humanities today." 

Am I being too simplistic when I say that libraries and librarians already provide this discipline? Maybe I'm reading this wrong but I am struck by what this writer calls Digital Humanities and where this concept is in relation to libraries.

Terry Patterson's curator insight, January 13, 3:10 PM

Despite the fact that research plays such a pivotal role in the practice of user-centered design, much has been written about how to approach it in a “quick and dirty” manner. Why the rush? I believe that the application of a more rigorous, scientific methodology could lend some much-needed credibility to our approach.
