The Sculpting Vis Collaborative is a multidisciplinary, cross-institutional team creating tools that bring artists, designers, and others outside of the sciences directly into the visualization process. Generating new methodologies through integration of the arts and the sciences, the Collaborative creates a richer, expanded vocabulary for visualization that improves domain science research, team collaboration, and public-facing communication about important issues in climate, computing, neurology, archeology, biology, and more.

Current research directions include:

  • Visualization software architectures for arts, humanities, and STEM integration
  • AR, VR, Data Physicalization, and Touch-Based Data Querying
  • Immersive and interactive visualization exhibitions in alternative venues
  • Humanities-based evaluation methods
  • Team science and knowledge building using physical and/or interactive visualization
