This would not be a lab if we did not dive into experimenting. Here are some of its transdisciplinary projects
Information visualization of a philosophical text
The visual depiction of processes is a basic educational and cognitive tool. We can all understand better an action, an experiment, a phenomenon, if we are presented with a visual example. At the same time the use of diagrams is a wide spread practice of study wherever direct correlations are noted (like figures, mathematical and formal relations). However after a certain level of abstraction, this kind of illustration seems insufficient in regards to the density of the information, and is therefore omitted. Could visual data analysis enabled with help of computers depict more analytical relations, like for example those that are presented in texts of philosophical reflection and offer images which do not merely accompany in an illustrative manner the text but manifest the ways which constitute it?
This transdisciplinary research which belongs aims at bringing together three elements: i/ a series of photographic images ii/ a philosophy paper analyzing them and iii/ visual data analysis tool in order to create a space where they intersect, i.e a computer-aided image—an information visualisation—based on the conceptual design extracted from the philosophical text interpreting the photographic images.
