Data surrounds each and every one of us in our daily lives, ranging from exercise logs, to archives of our interactions with others on social media, to online resources pertaining to our hobbies. There is enormous potential for us to use these data to understand ourselves better and make positive changes in our lives. Visualization (Vis) and visual(More)
Video conferencing commonly employs a video portal metaphor to connect individuals from remote spaces. In this work, we explore an alternate metaphor, a shared depth-mirror, where video images of two spaces are fused into a single shared, depth-corrected video space. We realize this metaphor in OneSpace, where the space respects virtual spatial(More)
Software is typically developed incrementally and released in stages. Planning these releases involves deciding which features of the system should be implemented for each release. This is a complex planning process involving numerous trade-offs-constraints and factors that often make decisions difficult. Since the success of a product depends on this plan,(More)
1: A sprinkle of data—Fireflies is a biomimicry-inspired visualization depicting data from a 2012 Canadian HIV/AIDS attitudinal survey. Each participant from the study is encoded as a firefly (coloured dot) whose motion depicts their comfort levels regarding HIV/AIDS. Fireflies are arranged randomly in 2D space, enticing individuals to interact with the(More)
We present Fireflies, a bio-inspired visualization using animal swarming behaviour and plant phyllotaxis. We applied Fireflies to a Canadian attitudinal survey on HIV/AIDS, using motion to depict participants' comfort levels concerning HIV+ people. The bio-inspired visual properties of Fireflies meld into an expressive and engaging representation of(More)
Motivation is a key factor for introducing and maintaining healthy changes in behaviour. However, typical visualization methods (e.g., bar-, pie-, and line charts) hardly motivate individuals. We investigate how a plant---a living visualization---whose health relies on the plant owner's level of activity, can engage people in tracking and self-reflecting on(More)

Personal informatics (PI) tools that support reflection are " personalized " insofar as the data consists of an individual's data. Typically, this data is presented in visualizations that are generic and non-individuated. In this paper, we argue for deep personalization, where the visualizations are constructed by individuals. Such functionality gives(More)
