Integrating the arts with computer science can open doors to discovery and creation and point the way to new understandings of the aesthetic in interactions with digital technologies. I will discuss how our integrated research methodology has impacted the development of our interactive information visualizations and tabletop computing research. I will illustrate this with examples of information visualization and interactive tabletop research.
Sheelagh Carpendale is a Professor at the University of Calgary who holds a Canada Research Chair in Information Visualization and a NSERC/iCORE/SMART Industrial Research Chair in Interactive Technologies. She directs the Innovations in Visualization (InnoVis) research group in the Interactions Lab at University of Calgary. Her research focuses on improving access to, and exploration and manipulation of information through developing better understanding of day to day information practices. Her research in information visualization, collaborative visualization, and interaction on tabletops and large displays, draws on her dual background: Computer Science (PhD, Simon Fraser University) and Visual Arts (Sheridan College and Emily Carr, College of Art).
