New media perspectives for information and data design

New media perspectives for information and data design

Search, Patricia;

Artigo Completo:

Multimedia design can expand our awareness of data relationships in complex information spaces. Traditional Western design organizes information in structured hierarchies that restrict the way we interpret relationships. In today’s information society, we need to represent information in fluid, holistic formats that challenge us to uncover new relationships using diverse spatial and temporal perspectives. We need to understand the semiotics of different media and the new semantic structures and metasyntax that result from cross-modal perception. This paper includes examples, created with an interactive art medium called HyperGlyphs, that illustrate new ways to incorporate unique design elements into engaging multimedia experiences. These examples encourage participants to explore dynamic information relationships from diverse perspectives that are outside the framework of Western logic. Graphics, sound, text, action, and reflective abstraction create a discursive environment that defines layers of sequential and simultaneous associations and kinaesthetic relationships that integrate the cognitive and sensory feedback from the interactive experience. During this interaction, multiple participants interact with the media, resulting in a dynamic social discourse that also adds new layers of meaning to the interpretation of the information.
