Computational Information Design ~ Ben Fry 2004

  1. How does the computational designer select what information is included in a visualization without being reductive, too complex, or inserting their own bias?

  2. What innate biologic/homosapien conditions exist that computational designers should be especially aware of?

  3. At what point does the data or visualization technique become too abstract, layered, or artistic that the lay person can no longer understand it? Is it the amount of variables, colors, perspective (3-D), interactivity?
