Artistic Visualizations and Beyond : A Study of Materializations of a Digital Database
Narvika Bovcon, Aleš Vaupotič, 2018, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The paper discusses a case study of the integration of artistic practice in the digital humanities research. The methodology of encoding meaning in visual form is explained for four different sculptures and an artist book. The approach is tied to the allegoric thinking in building emblems and miniatures in the history of art (16th century and later). The use of diagrams is integrated in the experimental projections of a future archeology. The data of digital humanities research can achieve greater visibility and address a wider cultural context when presented in collaboration with art institutions.
Keywords: digital humanities, information visualization, 3-D print, art and science

Theory of Discourse and Semiotics : Foucault, Bakhtin, Peirce
Aleš Vaupotič, 2019, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: The paper begins with an analysis of a news article reporting on scientific discovery. The scientific methods are considered from the point of view of Peircean semiotics and the structuralist semiology. The usefulness of the Peircean approach in literary scholarship is demonstrated in the case of the realist novel as it is construed by Hans Vilmar Geppert. By considering Geppert’s alignment of Bakhtin’s theory of the novel with Peirce’s sign-theory the similarities and differences between the discourse-theoretical (considering also Foucault’s work) and semiotic approaches is outlined. In the second part of the text two cases of artistic research are presented, the first one, the Friedhof Laguna project from 2003, being realised in the discourse-theoretical frameworks, and the second one, 3-D visualizations of the NEWW Women Writers database from 2017, being grounded in the Peircean semiotics.

Aleš Vaupotič, Narvika Bovcon, 2017, published scientific conference contribution abstract

Abstract: The study of informatics typically includes information visualization and the rhetoric of user interface. Such courses are expanding the core computer science curricula towards multimedia communication design. However, to practice visualization on datasets in a non-focused way may diminish the quality of educational effect as well as the quality of the results of students' projects. A collaboration with domain experts has proven to be very beneficial by involving students in various research projects and platforms. The students of informatics at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana, have touched upon humanities projects in different special domains: the datasets provided by Institute of Contemporary History (INZ, Ljubljana), interface design for electronic scholarly editions based on TEI XML files, documentation of new media art exhibitions, and others. As noted by some contributors in A New Companion to Digital Humanities (2016) with relevance to the latter aspect of interdisciplinary contact, the domain of new media art constitutes an essential inspiration for the study of digital humanities methods and approaches. In the second part of the paper, the multi-year collaboration between the University of Nova Gorica and University of Ljubljana computer-science curricula will be presented. The WomenWriters database, as well as subsequently the NEWW VRE, has been used in different models of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Visualization of the WomenWriters Database: Interdisciplinary Collaboration Experiments 2012 – 2015
Aleš Vaupotič, Narvika Bovcon, 2017, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: In the exploration of visualization methods in the WomenWriters database and consequently, the creating of interactive diagrams and other graphical interfaces that are presented here, the Research Centre for Humanities and the School of Humanities of the University of Nova Gorica collaborated with the University of Ljubljana. The visualization prototypes were realized by the students at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, University of Ljubljana, as part of Introduction to Design and Graphic Design courses, supervised by Narvika Bovcon, PhD, assistants Jure Demšar and Tadej Zupančič. The work spanned from 2012 to 2016. More then three hundred students were involved in the process. In the end, the most interesting visualizations were selected from the results and are presented in this article.
