Information visualization is a powerfully compelling medium for working with digital scholarship. Through visualization, we build narratives that enable us to reframe the world and our experience of it in carefully crafted slices of space and time. But as both practitioners and consumers of visualization, we sometimes forget that visualization can tell us more about ourselves than it can about the world alone. In this talk, by way of examples of recent personal works in visualization, I reclaim an understanding of information visualization as a medium for constructing narratives about self, other, and the space between them.

Steven Braun is the Data Analytics and Visualization Specialist in the Northeastern University Libraries. He earned his M.S. in molecular biophysics from Yale University and his B.A. in Asian studies and chemistry from St. Olaf College. He has lived in Kyoto, Japan as a Fulbright Fellow.
