The physical embodiment of data simultaneously communicates through the cognitive and the sensual perceptions. The bodily experience increases the involvement of the audience, calls upon conversation, and may cause paradigm shifts in the recipient's way of thinking. They create a passage between scientific and artistic practices for the creators. Melinda's doctoral research at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design presents data physicalization projects through which the above characteristics can be identified and examined. Melinda's intention is twofold: aiming at outlining a new interpretative framework for the selected projects, and putting it into a dialogue with her own data-related artworks made during the doctoral research period.This talk is an introduction to Melinda's research, and to her personal and collaborative projects in the fields of art-design and technology, as well as related teaching experiences.
