Virtual Interiors (2019-current)

The Virtual Interiors as Interfaces for Big Historical Data project focuses on the question of how we can develop and publish 2D/3D/4D user interfaces to the linked data of the Semantic Web in the form of digital maps and virtual rooms using historical data on the production and the consumption of the Dutch Golden Age. In the project I focus on designing and evaluating the rich types of user interfaces needed for accessing these rich sets of data. Role: researcher, designer
