Looking Outwards Visualization

This visualization depicts the “weight” of data, in the form of comparisons similar to ones shown in class. Again, Google is used to determine how important a word is. What’s interesting about this piece is its execution. Instead of providing a screen display (bar graph or the like), the piece uses the analogy of a scale to show how two words compare. Unlike the other visualizations presented in class, this piece incorporates tangible interaction and physical display for representing information.


The physical execution is nice, albeit a bit gratuitous. I wasn’t too fond of the input, but I like the interaction of dropping something onto the scale representing the word.
