Metaphors for Immersive Software Visualisation

Software visualisation make the intangible tangible. To do so, it uses metaphors which translate abstract and complex structures of code into graphical representation of entities and their relations. We create narrations through generating interactive environments; with the help of narrations we can talk about systems. The first system mentioned here is a software system, its patterns and anti-patterns. The second one is represented through the cultural techniques of VR and IT work, the techniques of cognitive capitalism – commercialism, digital labour or playbour (labour as a play) and creative expression – another “system” in need to discuss.

Visual Semiotics of Governmentality

What you see here is a virtual reality based datavisualization. A world of bar charts representing the budget of EU Commission from 2014 to 2020 known as The Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF). MFF lays down the maximum annual amounts (‘ceilings’) that the EU may spend in different political fields (‘headings’) over a period of no less than five years. By defining how much and in which areas should the EU invest over the period of seven years, the MFF is an expression of political priorities as much as a budgetary planning tool. Such complex monetary and political structure can therefore serve as a proper model for an experimental study of organised visual practices of different EU Commission initiatives.

Nice, nice, very nice

"Nice, nice, very nice von Lucia Mendelova spielt sich in der Zukunft ab, genauer im Jahre 2042. Auf einer Messe und einer dazu gehörigen Website werden unterschiedliche theoretische und philosophische Ansätze, wie “Objektorientierte Onthologie” “Digital Humanities” als Unternehmen inklusive eigenen Logos, Merchandising­ Produkten und Werbetext­ähnlichen Kurzbeschreibungen vorgestellt, die wie die Künstlerin sagt die “neo­neoliberale Zukunft” regieren werden. Wir betrachten Lucia Mendelovas Projekt als eine sehr clevere und ironische Kritik an den oft inhaltsleeren diskursiven Hypes um die jeweils neuesten Ansätze meist männlicher Theoretiker in der Kunst und der Akademia, innerhalb derer Wissensproduktion mehr und mehr den Charakter einer Ware annimmt statt ein kritischer Impetus zu sein."

Malen nach zahlen - Paint by Numbers

Die Bachelorarbeit befasst sich mit dem Thema Datenvisualisierung aus der Perspektive strukturkritisierender feministischer Arbeit. Anhand der Statistiken der HfK Bremen über die Anzahl der Studierenden, Lehrenden und Mitarbeitenden, genauso wie den vergebenen Hochschulpreisen werden verschiedene Visualisierungsstrategien entwickelt.
Weiter konzentriert sich der qualitative Teil der Arbeit auf die Durchführung von zirka sechs Interviews mit Absolvent*innen, welche dann in Form einer Klanginstallation (schwarze Pyramiden) dargestellt werden.
Eine theoretische Zusammenfassung der Arbeit befasst sich einerseits mit der Deutung der Metaphern „undichte Leitung“ und „Scheren Graph“ und stellt andererseits weitere Fragen zum Thema Datenvisualisierung und der eigenen gestalterischen Herangehensweise.

Lucia Mendelova, PhD.

(°1983, Bratislava, Slovakia) currently lives in rainy grayish city of Bremen with a warm social climate where she works as a software engineer and conceptual artist for VR/AR applications for visualising complex systems. She finished her MA in Digital Media (University of the Arts Bremen in cooperation with University Bremen 2017), her PhD. in Philosophy (Comenius University Bratislava 2013, specialization on epistemology, semiotics and gender studies) and her BA in Integrated Design (University of the Arts Bremen 2013 & University for Applied Sciences and Arts Luzern 2012). Since 2010 she works as a new media artist in the field of visual communication for different media (print, web, VR). Her works are usually manipulating the viewer to create irritation in order to present overlapping themes and strategies of hybridization of knowledge perception.
