Agency and Interactive Data Displays: Internet Graphics as Co-Created Rhetorical Spaces
agency, data visualization, interactive graphic
Much has been written about how to evaluate static graphics from the perspective of clarity, ethics, efficiency, and power relations. However, when considering interactive graphics, agency must enter the conversation. This article develops a typology to understand the balance of agency between the designers and users of interactive graphics. The authors use this typology to interrogate 2contemporary theories of rhetorical agency advanced by Miller and by Herndl and Licona.
