HOW CAN WE VISUALIZE PERSONAL DATA IN AN ENTERTAINING WAY TO GAIN A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF OURSELVES?
How can we visualize personal data in an entertaining way? Personal information accounts for a substantial part of “big data”. We provide various information about ourselves online every day. Once uploaded, the information can be transformed in various ways. I explored how consumers can experiment with visualization of their private data. The focus was on a desire that is hardly expressed in concrete words or forms. The interactive play visualizes a set of desires and finds a balance. Within a common set of desires, individuals differ greatly in a degree to which they possess certain aspirations or wishes. Such differences cause unexpected complexity, and I established specific rules within random images.
(Collect my data from Facebook, and classify them according to types of desire)
(Set the basic element of visualization)
(Set the rule of interactive play and test the way of visualization)
(Prototype of the application)
