Abstract

This paper introduces a new approach to classifying the way in which data visualizations mediate our experience of the world. In doing so we will use the concept of human-technology relations as developed by Don Ihde, a phenomenological philosopher of technology. Following a synopsis of Ihde’s four human-technology relations, each is then developed in the context of specific data visualization technologies/artefacts.
