EA16 06 Erwin Feyersinger - Wizards of Data: Embodied Cognition and Animated Visualizations I Animation Hagenberg
Dynamic, i.e. animated, visualizations are a highly pervasive form of moving images, increasingly used in various academic disciplines, in journalism, and in education. While many visualizations foster meaning-making of complex phenomena, others achieve quite the opposite by being unintentionally misleading or even intentionally deceptive. I will argue that embodied image schemata strongly influence both the understanding and misunderstanding of visualizations.
