Making visible the invisible: art, design and science in data visualisation. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield. ISBN 978-1-86218-103-8

The publication demonstrates a whole range of qualities of research into visualisation techniques.

First, i think, the texts demonstrate the inherent inter- and trans-disciplinarity of data-visualisation. Artists collaborating with software developers, graphic designers engaging with environmental sciences, how artistic approaches can become essential in visual communication of scientific data (emotion), or how hands-on application of methods can lead to new knowledge, among many other approaches.
What all works share is that they incorporate skills, knowledge and methodologies from multiple domains. None of these results could have been achieved by a single individual. Not a single submission draws from just single discipline e.g. an artist critically reflecting art, or an archaeologist presenting archaeological artefacts. They all had to cross-over into other domains, learn, reflect and critique on multiple levels. I think as such it is an excellent demonstration of the multi-, trans-, and inter-disciplinarity of design.
Secondly it shows different relationships between theory and practice. While some researchers enjoy to theorise and doing so upon the practice of third parties, others enjoy practice and the theorising becomes an explication of the process of documentation and critical reflection: Producing theory bottom-up, growing out of practice.
These, and more, approaches become visible in this interdisciplinary publication of multiple disciplines engaging in data-visualisation in order to make the invisible visible.
