        Subject: from visualisation to perceptualisation

Allow me to draw your attention to the following book chapter that I
just spotted:

Gabriele Salciute Civiliene, "The Phenomenological Turn: From Data
Visualization to Perceptualization", in Advances in Design and Digital
Communication II (Springer, 2022).

While language can portray, evoke, and show fictional worlds,
paradoxically, it stops showing when we turn it into logocentric data.
The limitations of 2D visualization and its logocentric approach to data
have given rise to the technical and conceptual concerns of the project
which seeks to understand what underpins spatial imagination in
literature and its translation. The paper discusses how the prototyping
of 3D equivalents of culture-specific objects depicted in William
Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury and its translation lays the
groundwork for immersive methodologies of exploring the anthropological
dimensions of mental places constructed in the original and the
translated production of literature.
