Making the invisible visible

Key idea: Making abstract concepts perceptible through data visualization.

Emotions, ideas, hope, and happiness are examples of abstract concepts that have no physical or spatial constraints because they have no direct representation in the physical world. They are hard to explain and usually generate a great amount of debate and so much literature, but can we turn these abstract concepts into something perceptible to the eye, and more importantly, useful in acquiring knowledge? How can transposing these concepts into insightful data visualizations help the community at large?

Tools I will be talking about: Flourish Studio, Tableau Public, Datawrapper, Rawgraphs, Affinity Designer
