Tangible Statistics Linguistics

Tangible Statistics Linguistics highlights agency, empathy and awareness with neurotypical and neurodivergent individuals and neurodiverse communities through spatial awareness and haptic elements; and invites visitors to explore and experience this data through interaction with the tangible boundary objects. The aim of the project is to raise awareness and enable discussions regarding this subject.

My major project additionally explores the creation of layers or variations of complexity, intertextual stimuli and modes which are engaging, helpful and provide an avenue that facilitates the creation of new experiences and conversations.

  • I'm interested in exploring the voices within quantitaitve and qualitative data; I create work using physical interactions, through investigative play. Coming from a graphic design and computer science background, I use an agile approach with emphasis on research and testing.

    My major project Tangible Statistics Linguistics highlights agency, empathy and awareness with neurotypical and neurodivergent individuals and neurodiverse communities through spatial awareness and haptic elements; this thread can be seen through my various projects.
