Facing Affect and Emotion is a presentation that addresses the history of Data Visualization within the humanities research. Our research suggests that artists are and have always been concerned with visualization techniques that are now entering other disciplines. We discuss models of research creation and the aspects of “labour”, “craft”, “research” and “practice-led” projects and suggest, that these terminologies and methods are a sign of contemporary practice and its ambivalent nature. Studio and research creation will be challenged with study that comes out of scientific and interdisciplinary research.
The presentation will focus on the analysis of the language used for interdisciplinary research and highlights on the tools that researchers engage with. The presentation demonstrates a study that uses 3D technologies, haptics, sculpting and data analysis. A true collaboration between the arts and sciences.
