Jin-Kyu Jung and Ted Hiebert publish “Mapping Haunted Data: Creative Geographic Visualization”

IAS faculty members Jin-Kyu Jung and Ted Hiebert published the article Mapping Haunted Data: Creative Geographic Visualization in Livingmaps Review.

The article emphasizes forms of visualization and mapping that preserve, represent, and generate more authentic, contextual, and nuanced meanings of space and the people that inhabit space—using specifically artistic and humanistic perspectives and approaches. This essay is partly a theoretical reflection on the idea of haunted data and partly an account of an ongoing interdisciplinary collaboration between an urban geographer/planner interested in the critical and creative possibilities of GIS and an art scholar specializing in thinking about digital culture and creative practice.
