MAS 965: Social Visualization the face

Professor Judith Donath


essays and sketches

In thinking about social visualizations, the face can be both input and output. As input, the face is a source of social information - it provides cues about personality, attention, emotions, and intentions (or, at least, people interpret it this way - what information the face reveals about inner state remains a controversial issue). As output, the face can be a medium for indicating these qualities - or any others one might choose to map onto it.
