During their current fellowships at the AIAS, fellows Lotte Philipsen (Art History) and Rikke Schmidt Kjærgaard (iNano) are collaborating on the organization of the conference ’MORE THAN PRETTY PICTURES – the Aesthetics of Data Representation’.

Theme of the conference

Data representation plays an increasingly important role in our daily lives – not only in our understanding of the world but also of our selves. We constantly provide, explore, analyse and communicate data that are not immediately accessible to human senses.

This conference explores visual and aesthetic challenges related to data representation and provides new perspectives to our understanding of data representation. The conference covers a variety of cross-disciplinary issues relating to scientific and aesthetic representation, and to data visualization in particular.

Call for Papers

The call is aimed at researchers, scholars and PhD students in the fields of biology, molecular biology, visual arts, semiotics, nanoscience, art history, physics, aesthetics, social sciences, digital design, philosophy, computer sciences, medical sciences etc.
