Research output: Conference Article in Proceeding or Book/Report chapterArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


This paper presents two contributions: (i) an algorithm for generating visualizations of the historical interfield relations of a topic within a scientific corpus by parsing scientific literature and linking it using citation metrics, and (ii) a poster generated using aforementioned algorithm, that depicts the historical development of 'interaction' within the field of Human-Computer Interaction, based on all CHI papers and their citation data from Google Scholar. Furthermore, we discuss possibilities and limitations of disseminating scientific developments through artistic practice.
