Title: Beyond the merely visual: Interacting with digital objects in interdisciplinary scientific practice
Author: Monteiro, M
Abstract: The aim of this article is to discuss how digital objects interactively participate in knowledge production in science. Data collected suggests that while scientific visualizations are employed with the aim to 'simplify' the apprehension of complex sets of data, there is much interpretive work that occurs before the group arrives at shared meanings concerning such images, which are in turn essential in establishing the truth of the mathematical models analyzed through such visual means. Shared understandings are achieved through oral communication and embodied interaction with visual objects, complementing the meanings which images and words purport to convey on their own.
