Ennis-Butler, Ben, Sam Hinton, and Mitchell Whitelaw, ‘Playing with Complexity: An Approach to Exploratory Data Visualisation’, ACUADS 2011. Available: http://acuads.com.au/conference/2011-conference/article/ben-ennis-butler-sam-hinton-and-mitchell-whitelaw/

Developing ideas through our own practice of visualising cultural heritage collections, we argue that finding order within complexity is a pleasurable experience.
