This project designs and tests graphical user interfaces and information visualization strategies in order to investigate the ways that abstract and complex information can be conveyed through intuitive design. PUBLIC:PORTAL will capitalize on the unique potential of the digital platform to construct a responsive, flexible and adaptive digital infrastructure to facilitate collaborations and experiments between researchers and artists/designers.
